Honeybees and Poppy Seeds

Pin It

Honey bees. We've been bemoaning the loss of honey bees in the garden for several years now. When the poppies started sprouting up every where this spring, I left them alone even though I wanted to spread the compost pile in which they were growing throughout the garden. I'm so glad I didn't. Honey bees are here in full force. A little wild, a little agressive, but I give them a wide berth and we get along just fine.

Pollen depleted

Visions of poppyseed cake!

Do click on the bee photo to get a close up. One is in flight. Lucky me.
