One of my favorite bees is the species “Bombus”, commonly known as bumblebees. Most bumblebees are large and easy to spot as they roll in pollen, gathering nectar.
This year, we are proud to announce that the Great Sunflower Project is producing a set of note cards featuring beautiful bumblebees in action, illustrated by Noel Pugh. Noel’s bees, while colorful and fun are completely accurate scientifically, and compare amazingly well with the bumblebees we see in our gardens every day.
The cards are printed on beautiful vellum card stock and each set features three bumblebee designs and contains 15 cards, perfect for all-occasion note writing or gift giving. They will ship in early December – perfect for the holidays. A set of 15 is $15 and proceeds will enable the Great Sunflower Project to continue the important work of pollinator conservation.
These unique cards are only available through the Great Sunflower Project, and will sell out. I’m planning to use mine for writing thank you notes this holiday season. Aside from observing beautiful bumblebees in our gardens, the small act of taking the time to write a personal note on these exquisite cards is one of the season’s pleasures we can all enjoy!
