What is blooming on the patio now?

December 22, 2017

 

It's nice to see some plants still blooming now, for example some cosmos plants that are growing from seed that fell from plants growing in neighboring flower pots.

 

These plants are a great source of nectar and pollen for bees.

Even now, as long as these plants are blooming, the bees are still visiting the garden.

 

 

 

 

 

 

And the butterfly bushes are still producing a few flower heads, although there are few butterflies around this time of year. I do see Gulf Fritillaries and Umber Skippers now and then. They do have food sources in the garden such as these, as well as asters.
