A naturalist's passionate dive into the lives of bees (of all stripes)-and the natural world in her own backyard

Brigit Strawbridge-Howard was shocked the day she realised she knew more about the French Revolution than she did about her native trees. And birds. And wildflowers. And bees.

The thought stopped her-quite literally-in her tracks. But that day was also the start of a journey, one filled with silver birches and hairy-footed flower bees, skylarks, and rosebay willow herb, and the joy that comes with deepening one's relationship with place.

'Dancing with Bees' is Strawbridge-Howard's charming and eloquent account of a return to noticing, to rediscovering a perspective on the world that had somehow been lost to her for decades and to reconnecting with the natural world. With special care and attention to the plight of pollinators, including honeybees, bumblebees, and solitary bees, and what we can do to help them, Strawbridge-Howard shares fascinating details of the lives of flora and fauna that have filled her days with ever-increasing wonder and delight.
