Honey Bee on the lavender plant


While I was cleaning up the garden this past weekend I noticed that bees are still visiting.

They especially are attracted to the lavender plants.

That is why I am always cutting off the spent blossoms and dried branches.

The plants keep producing new growth, including blossoms, which then provide for the pollinators.

In the above image a honey bee is getting nectar from a fresh lavender blossom.
