    Good morning little one! You're up early! Must be something flowering somewhere that my human eyes can't see. 
So many gumtrees have such tiny nondescript flowers that we simply dont notice them. But our wee natives bees are adapted to finding them and using the pollen to raise the next generation of hard working bees. 
Arent they clever wee things? .

    The #agave plant isn’t just for making #delicious #tequila. #agaveamericana is also known as the #centuryplant and it grows wild here in the #southwest. Once it #blooms (usually after a 15-20 year lifecycle) it dies, and this year I’ve seen quite a few hitting this #finalstage. They make spectacular #wildflower #blossoms. That’s a fun #contemplation - #reproduction then #death - your cycle is complete. Meanwhile these beautiful grand flower spikes attract many #insects and #birds.  #reallife #flowers #bluesky #nature #pollinators

    #DidYouKnow Australia has over 1600 identified species of native bees, varying in size form a tiny 2mm to 24mm ?⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Native bees are hugely important for a natural environment. #golocal Here's why :⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
They have co-evolved for millions of years with native plant species. Native bees developed techniques to pollinate their favourite flowers that the other imported honey bees didn’t ! #couplegoals⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Some solitary bees, such as the native blue-banded bee in the picture, use a technique called buzz pollination, pollinating crops such as tomatoes and spring flowers. #createthebuzz⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Size also determine pollination. Large bees are strong and can open plants like peas, while small sized bees can negotiate their way around tiny flowers.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Australian indigenous bees are key to further protect the local fauna as they are resistant to the varroa mite. This mite has been pointed out as one of the major cause in the drop of honey bees’ population worldwide. Research is being carried out to find out if native bees could support the crop pollination work of the honey bees if the varroa mite enters the country. #NotAllHeroesWearCapes ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

    The bees were much happier when I moved the second feeder away from their old entrance - now our new bees have two ways to get into their hive with their sisters. ️ we had cold rain for the past week and they have some pollen stored but I am worried that they have almost no honey or even nectar stores. Any ideas about how to help them get what they need to draw out new comb?

    Pollinators

This little beetle (Blister Beetle?) was busy snaking on some fresh pollen straight from the anther. At the same time that pollen is sticking to the beetles waxy cuticle and falling all over lower flowers. This is basically plant porn. NC17

    The Mayapple (podophyllum peltatum) is a unique woodland plant, producing one showy white flower per plant. An edible(when fully ripe) fruit follows the flower. The plant spreads by rhizomes and makes a great ground cover in shady sites.

    It’s monarch time! In our mostly Michigan native plant garden we already have three caterpillars! As many know monarchs (Danaus plexippus) feed only on milkweed, but many don’t know that there are numerous milkweed species that live in a variety of different habits with lots of different flowers and growth forms! Here are some photos of eastern milkweeds from my adventures in Michigan, Illinois, and Missouri 2017-2019!

1. Monarch caterpillar on common milkweed
2. Common milkweed (Asclepias syriaca)
3. Swamp milkweed (Asclepias incarnata)
4. Narrow leafed milkweed (Asclepias stenophylla)
5. Green Milkweed (Asclepias viridis)
6. Green comet milkweed (Asclepias viridiflora)
7. Whorled milkweed (Asclepias verticillata)
8-9. Butterfly milkweed (Asclepias tuberosa) and in habitat
10. Last but not least, Purple Milkweed (Asclepias purpurescens)! By planting milkweeds we can not only help this interesting butterfly to keep thriving into the future, but benefit other pollinators as well!

    This morning while picking blackberries I started to get overwhelmed/feel bad about not being able to take care of our field since we aren’t to the point we can buy a tractor yet and we haven’t paid to have it bush hogged either BUT I went over the hill and saw all this butterfly weed and felt a million times better. There’s so many more wildflowers growing this year than last year after getting it cut it’s amazing. I was envious of this plant growing in other fields all summer. We have our very own wildlife habitat going on now! #butterflyweed #monarch #pollinators #meadow #wildflowers

    I went to pick some herbs for dinner and found this hungry, hungry caterpillar. Apparently parsley is a host plant for the Black Swallowtail. I didn’t mind that it was eating that particular parsley because I had already let it go to seed- I just hope it comes back to visit my flowers once it turns into a butterfly.️ #learningallthetime #caterpillars #butterflies #ilovebutterflies #pollinators #pollinatorswelcome #herbgarden #homestead #homeplaceiswheremyheartis

I've seen this growing out of a crack in the pavement, if you don't want it to spread, clip off the heads when it finishes flowering.
•
While it is virtually no maintenance, continuous dead-heading will prolong the flowering season.

Shout out to @sal_herb who's front garden I took this clip in

    Verbena bonariensis, Pupletop, #101daysofplants • • I'veseen this growing out of a crack in the pavement, if you don't want it to spread, clip off the heads when it finishes flowering. • While it is virtually no maintenance, continuous dead-heading will prolong the flowering season. • Shout out to @sal_herbwho's front garden I took this clip in • • #verbena#verbenabonariensis#purpletop#purpleflowers#frontgardendesign#cityliving#urbangarden#tallplants#lowmaintenance#height#brazil#invasivespecies#fanfavourite#plantidentification#plantdesign#flowerstagram#plantsoftheday#plantsofinstagram#pollinators#bees#butterflyeffect

    Today, the rapeseed honey and the spring blossom honey were finally harvested. Not all bee colonies collected as diligently as this one. The deciding factor was the extremely bad weather in May. But I do not want to complain and I'm happy about every jar of honey, which I can fill up later from my beesHave a nice weekend!

Heute wurde der Rapshonig und der Honig der Frühjahrsblüte endlich geerntet. Nicht bei allen Bienenvölkern wurde so fleißig gesammelt wie bei diesem. Ausschlaggebend dafür war das extrem schlechte Wetter im Mai. Aber ich möchte mich nicht beschweren und freu mich über jedes Glas Honig, was ich später von meinen Bienen abfüllen darf wünsche euch ein schönes Wochenende!

    I honestly can't tell the difference between a #greatspangledfritillary and a #aphroditefritillary. Couple days ago I spotted my first one in the #bamboo, today I saw at least half a dozen enjoying the #milkweed flowers that just opened up. Nice to watch from a distance...still grosses me out when I think about how it used to be a caterpillar.

    Tired bees have to want to be helped.

Leaving this guy with a little sugar water tonight for release in the morning when things warm up. Hope he finds his lust for life.

No point crying over spilt honey, this cleanup crew are straight to work.

This is some vision of a cut-out beehive removal I did yesterday at Mountain Creek.  The full version coming soon :) 
It really is amazing how quickly a colony can clean up spilt honey. They are instinctively on to the job, I guess to prevent robbing by bees from other colonies, and also to save their precious and hard earned resource.

 I pays to take my time doing these jobs and let the bees help out. Rushing never saves time.
