Bee Broccoli

The temperatures have dipped low enough in the evenings at Woodland that most of our flowers are gone.  There are a few dahlias hanging on but definitely fodder for the bees has depleted.  We had a few head of broccoli that weren’t harvested and have begun to flower.  Whoa!  The bees are mad for it!  The broccoli head are large –making plenty of room for a number of bees to share the space.  I imagine them rushing back to the hive and doing their little bee dance.

IF you haven’t had time to clean your garden up for winter, consider leaving a few plants to flower.
