Lovin' the lavender

Bee on lavender flower, Blue Bell Hill traffic circle.Blue Bell Hill traffic circle, Monday evening.

Lavender is the popular flavor these days among bees in this neck of the woods. Of all the other flowers they had to choose from, they decided to crowd these blooms.

It is a popular flower everywhere I think. I have some that is visited by all kinds of bees, and then there is different kinds of sage that is equally as popular.

This is a nice photo of the bumblebee and lavender, Dan.

The smell of lavender is what gets me, I wonder if bees can smell? They love flowers so much...maybe I 'd better Wikipedia that!

I don't blame them, I love the smell of lavender too. There is something so soothing about it. Such a lovely summertime photo!

Over here you can get lavender honey, made by bees which have amost exclusively fed on honey - it tastes great, but is not as much fun as heather honey - which you test by holding it upside down over your head! If it stays in the jar, the bees have fed exclusively on heather! :)
