Bees in the Garden
Reality television doesn't compare to watching bees do their thing in the garden. I could have observed them all day recently, but it was hot outside (they don't mind the heat). Different bees can be spotted in a landscape - bumble bees, honey bees, native bees, European paper wasp, and even the dreaded western yellow jacket. It's easy to confuse western yellow jacket with the European paper wasp, check out this You Tube to learn the differences. Bees love many garden plants including honey bees on this white blooming garlic chive plant. Tune into the bee channel in your garden!
