TAST # 13 Cretan: open, closed & knotted

Spring is on the move. New plants rise from stubble, a flower waves to tempt a bee.
On the news we have a new concern: bee colonies are being killed by a fungus, or virus or ??? A very large percentage of plants are pollinated by bees - including the plants we eat.

Yes, I've heard that our polinators are in a massive die-off.

We must know why and adapt.

The latest news from Spain is that reaearchers there are wondering if cellular phone radiation is disrupting the bees there - causing older bees to leave hives with the younger bees left behind not able to collect pollen.
