PINK FLOWERS OF THE STREET


Well I found this new species of pink flowers here in Berlin on a house-wall in Waldenserstreet. Unfortunately, the bees can not make profit of this situation as it merely serves the eyes of human inhabitants in town as a nice farewell.  But there are lots of other possibilities for bees in town, so in this regard, it is interesting that even the German federal parliament Bundestag has an own beekeeper with beehives on its premise producing some kind of ‘political’ honey each year which must be in any case really much, much better than a lot of laws and regulations being approved at the same place.

  2. This is very interesting! Very nice photo, Ulli. Does the Bundestag really have its own beekeeper?

  3. Hi Debbie! I very well understand that this sounds a bit strange, but it is really true. Two members of the Federal German Parliament (Socialdemocratic MP Burkert & Green MP Höhn) have initiated this project as a small and symbolic sign against the global death of more and more bees. The beekeeper Benedikt Polaczek does take care of 50,000 bees since April 2016 which are really located on the premises of the Bundestag. Under the following link you will find a photo of the respective politicians and the beekeeper standing in the middle of both:

    • This is a project by two members of the parliament, I assume that they have paid for it if applicable. More probable is that they have just persuaded a beekeeper to put some of his bees on the premises of the Bundestag but I do not know who is consuming the honey actually.
