66061:  Little Leaf Lindens and Catalpa trees have started blooming.  The bees are still working the White Dutch Clover and Yellow Sweet Clover which is in abundance this year.

66061:  My Oakleaf Hydrangeas have been blooming since 6/6.  Yesterday, on 6/11, the bushes were buzzing.  My bees looked like ghost bees gathering white pollen and placing it in their corbicula.  The pollen clung to their tiny hairs all over their bodies.  Besides honey bees I counted 3 other native bee species.




The bees are still working the White Dutch Clover.

66061:  A few inches of rain and the bees were working the White Dutch Clover, again!

66061:  Found some Goldenrod today.  Unfortunately, the bees don't work the Goldenrod that is plentiful around here.  They will work Stiff Goldenrod.
