Blueberries in bloom, thank goodness for bumble bees because I never see a honeybee working them.  Nectarine just finished blooming and the wild mustard starting up too. Dogwoods, crabapples, redbuds and hoping we get a good bloom on the black locust.

Watched my bees working the vitex at 7am this morning as I was leaving for work.  8pm tonight, still working.  Standing next to the tree you can hear the buzz.  They are working the Culver's Root tonight along with some native bumble bees.

66061  We are about to wrap the nectar flow up here. There are perennials, herbs and gardens still to gather nectar, but the major flow is over.  Vitex is still being worked from sun up to sun down by honey bees.  I am seeing a couple of new species of native bees on the vitex this year.

I observed this in Golden, Co. on July 30th.  I believe this is Motherwort.  Even though the picture doesn't reflect it, the plants were covered with honey bees, native bees and so forth.

66061:  Sweet Autumn Clematis
Rather invasive as it blankets over other vegetation.  In some areas that it has taken over, it makes a beautiful display.

66061:  Found this blooming in between the driveway and the street.  Blue sky or Azure aster.

I am sure it has been mowed, driven over, and had the recycling bin parked on top of it.

Anise Hyssop still going, Sedum, Joe Pye Weed and my Flat Head Goldenrod.  Did not pinch back my Mums this summer, so they should bloom soon.

66061: New England asters are starting to open.  They are covered in buds.
For now, the sedums are being worked hard by the bees.
