September food for bees

September 10, 2015

 

California carpenter bee female xylocopa californica on Sapphire salvia.

 

 

It's taking extra vigilance in this heat to keep the bee food sources thriving.  I'm so happy to see the salvia plants in containers produce more blossoms. After the first group of blossoms dried up I didn't see any carpenter bees in the backyard. But now they are visiting again!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Many of the lambs ears are starting to dry up, but fortunately some are still producing blossoms. That should keep the bees happy.
