This is a great pic to zoom in on... see one of our hard workin' beez?
Because our beez are so valuable (with all the pollinatin' and such) I took the time to plant a small "bee garden" by the upper hive: lavender, bee balm, lemon balm, thyme, cat mint, and the like. I also left some of the buckwheat (from my soil improvement project) standing. As an extra measure we rotate the mowing of our yard to allow the low white clover to blossom. Sometimes it looks a little shaggy - but you can't do enough for the beez!
Thats the buzz.. have a great day! (Are you keeping your poultry cool? Keep those water buckets full!)
