Just sharing some late summer flowers and a few bee shots.
Enjoy the summer and stay safe!
Despite the summer heat, this has been a good year for sunflowers. I tried to grow some exotic colors but the seeds that did the best we’re the Mammoth ones that I purchased at the Dollar Tree.
I love this time of year, so that I can watch the many pollenators in my yard! Enjoy the summer and bee safe!
Sorry about my lack of recent posts! I am still around and my bees 🐝 are healthy.
Above is a photo of one of my several sunflowers 🌻 in my yard. I have taken a bit of break on the blog but, my hope over the next few weeks is to post the many photos and stories that I have documented over the last few months so please stay tuned!
Over the last few weeks, I started some flower seeds inside because of the recent Nor’easter. My hope is to get a jump start on the pollinator friendly plants.
I thought that I would share some tips on indoor planting that I found on the internet.
Good Luck 🍀
I will be getting my 1st set of new bees on April 7th. So look out for some new bee 🐝 posts.
I am currently a taking the UME Baltimore City Master Gardener course and last week we talked about pollinators which is one of my favorite topics. It sparked me to look at my garden and what I plant. Last year, I planted sunflowers and they were great in my garden. I found that sunflowers attracted a myriad of bees and other pollinators.
This year as part of my work with BeeMore, I am going up my game a bit by planting additional sunflowers at different sites. I found some great resources on this and the ongoing Great Sunflower Project.
I will share more on my efforts to support Project Sunflower.
