I have just placed about  1/3 of all posts into one or more categories.  This is a great way to place blogs of a certain topic under one heading.  If you see a category that should be included into the blog- Let me know!

I will continue working on this part of the update.  In the meantime we are going to move over our blog subscribers to this blog.  Subscribers receive notification of newly posted blogs.  This is a handy reminder that there is a new post.

I have just figured out how to add new categories into the blog.  I think this will make it a lot simpler to find articles of interest because blogs are grouped under a one or more categories.  One blog may be under several categories.

For example, my trip to Holland last year has a blog on bee attractive flowers.  This particular blog would be under two categories: Travel, and Bee attractive plants.

If you have an idea for this blog or an idea  for a new category, please let me know.-Margriet

 

 

This is the first blog at its new home location.

Last week, my blog Beediverse was moved from Google blogspot to this Beediverse web site. This move is exciting to me because it makes it more my own.  It also makes it easier for people to find us  and adding blogs is easier if it is all under the same roof.

Fly searching for nectar in Sedum spp.flowers

With summer holidays behind us, it is now time to add into this blog, a backlog of emails and ideas sent over the summer.

Interest is spreading into identification of other bee species and insects that are seen in the garden.  People are sending great photos of these insects and we hope we can identify them. The photo on the right is a photo of a fly on Sedum spp.

In this photo of a fly, note the absence of  antennae (bees have antennae and if you look closely at a bee, each antennae is made up of segments- less then 20).

One of the things that is on my to-do list is to categorize each of the old posts to make them more accessible.  For example, if you are interested in seeing my blogs of my travels, then you can look under ‘travels’.  The category ‘Old city of Dordrecht’ will be placed under ‘Travels.  The only thing is that I have not been able to figure out how to remove a category…yet.
