Walking into the Geffrye’s period gardens not only give us a sense of how gardens have evolved in English urban homes during the last 400 years, but it is also just plain pleasant! Especially at this time of the year, when flowers are blooming all around the garden: it looks like a color explosion (and it smells quite nice too!)So why do flowers look and smell so nice? Not just to please us humans, but to attract birds and insects to help pollinate them. It seems that birds, bees, and other animals love flowers just as much as people do.
These little pollinating creatures have been known to stop by the Geffrye’s herb gardens, so next time you come for a visit, keep an eye out, because a little bee may just be enjoying the gardens along with you.
