13a) Potter Flower Bee ~ Just Doing My Bit
“Just Doing My Bit’ by Lydia Needle. Tiny framed art piece which was made to be a companion to 13bee. "The Potter Flower Bee is one of Britain’s most declined bees. That statement alone made me feel powerless – to help in some way, to bring change, to do anything really. This bee is not even found in my county of Somerset, just a few sites in Dorset, north Hampshire, Isle of Wight, and East Sussex so what can I do? If you live in those counties you could keep a patch of Ground Ivy, Common Bird’s-foot-trefoil, Kidney Vetch, clovers or Viper’s-bugloss. As for me, I’m going to just do my bit for the bees in my area and hope it helps." Media: Dandelion clock, vintage Kamibari gold thread, gold leaf, graphite 19cm x 19cm framed ready for hanging.
