4 Interesting Flower Stories from Around the Web

Here is a quick roundup of four articles that we've found interesting over the past month or so and thought we'd share with our readers.

  • Bees can't sniff out flowers because of CARS (via The Daily Mail): This widely-reported story got our attention because it could have big implications on the world's food supply. The pollution caused by diesel fumes is apparently affecting honeybees' ability to locate pollen-bearing plants. Worth a read for sure.
  • Freedom trees honour our heroes and sacrifices (via The Star): Just in time for Remembrance Day, well-known gardening expert Mark Cullen relates a touching story of his relationship with his 95-year-old veteran friend, as well as reporting on an effort to line a highway in London, Ont. with trees.
  • Decorating with Fall Colors (via CNN): Some excellent ideas on how to incorporate the tones of the Autumn season, drawing inspiration from the foliage outside, into your interior decorating. 
  • Like the Heart, Tulips Know No Season (via Huffington Post): An exciting development, reported on  by writer Bill Prescott, who explains that growers have developed methods of allowing Tulips to grow year-round as opposed to just during the spring.
