Lots of food for the bees


This year, I think I've been better with providing food for our bee, butterfly and bird visitors in the backyard.

To be sure that there is always something blooming, providing food, I've been purchasing more and more native plants.

In the image above are blossoms from lavender and Warriner Lytle plants that are growing next to each other.

The naked buckwheat is still a big attraction for bees and butterflies.

It's so interesting to see the colors change.

Now the flower heads are almost completely rust colored, with some bright pink blossoms.

Close to the naked buckwheat, the salvia and magenta colored tickweed provide more nectar and pollen. Such vibrant colors here, too.
