Be Sweet like the Sweet Pepper Bush

Summer sweet a.k.a Sweet Pepper bush has taught me how to be sweet (literally).  We'll call it Summer Sweet this time around.

Let's start with how to act sweet.

Being sweet isn't just about giving someone a present or saying thank you from time to time. In fact, it's kind of a science.

One that makes us all better human beings.

Acknowledge everyone, not just your friend or family member, as you don't need to know someone to make them feel happy/special.

Summer Sweet proves this by attracting tons upon tons of new bees a day, and feeding them it's sweet nectar.

A lot of people make the mistake to only care about helping those who they know really well.

Help anyone and everyone in need with respect and love and you truly are a sweet person.

Now about how to actually taste/be sweet ? Fill yourself with around 100 drops of nectar a day LOL! As they say, you are what you eat.

 

Sweet Pepper Bush

Summersweet, it’s god of the bees.

Hee, hee bees go drunk, they are crazy nectar monks.

This plant is a shrub, it’s the ultimate bee grub.

It blooms in the summer, it gets lots of new comers.

The buzzers and the hummers I’m talking bees.

A third of plate is dependent on these tiny critters.

Summersweet, it’s god of the bees.

Hee, hee bees go drunk, they are crazy nectar monks.

This plant has another name Sweet Pepperbush,

and it gets lot of bees but, don’t fear their stinger tush.

Unless you try to hurt them or get too close,

Bees won’t sting you or enter your nose.

In fact, it’s amazing the way they act,

they help, us so much through pollination.

Without them we would be a poor nation.

Plants are not just decoration,

They serve the pollinators through their life duration.

When you plant them native, the rate of bees increases.

More bees means more crops at your favorite shops.

Summersweet, it’s god of the bees.

Hee, hee bees go drunk, they are crazy nectar monks.

This plant likes the partial sun and sandy soil it will grow without a toil.

It can bloom pink and white and check out it’s height 5 – 7 feet tall you got that right.

So plant this in with your vegetable patch, it will be of great use to multiply your produce.

And it smells so nice, people often mistake it for vanilla spice.

Summersweet, it’s god of the bees.

Hee, hee bees go drunk, they are crazy nectar monks.

How do we see Patterns in Nature?

Fibonacci sequence is a very popular model in mathematical  that was created by observing how nature preserves itself. Here are some fun resources to see how to understand the model through the growth of the rabbit, cow and bee family. Such a fun way to explain an infinite series to children. It is also observed in seeds such as the pine cones, the center of a sunflower and in the ways leaves are arranged in a plant.  Check all these beautiful applications of mathematics in Nature.
