Nectar of the Gods
Inviting & delighting this
humble bumble bee.
This summer, I’ve observed an unbelievable number of bumble bees visit the flowers in my garden. They definitely have taste preferences! Just like us humans!
Their favorite plant is my Lavender Grosso, followed closely by goldenrod, which flowers in early fall.
These bumble bees tirelessly forage daily for nectar and pollen from early morning until the sun has almost set. Some bumble bees have really long tongues which they tuck under their chin when flying.
I strongly believe that not using chemicals in my garden helps attract more beneficial insects. Hopefully that makes at least a tiny difference in helping to stop their steady population decline.
