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!
Hi! Here are few photos of the sunflowers 🌻 at home and photos of bees in my home hive.
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!
People often ask me how and why I started beekeeping and BeeMore and it all goes back to the garden. This morning, I dropped by the offices before an Earth day event and I was inspired by these seedlings which started off like this…or probably more like this last summer
So it’s great to see the early evolution of these plants before we put them in the garden when the weather warms a but more.
Happy Earth Day!
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.
