Thank you vic. I am glad you enjoyed it.

In case you all didn't notice....with this article I made the plant names clickable to the entry in the Plants For Honey Bees database. There you can check out things like the latin name, zones, plant type, color of honey if it's a nectar plant and pollen color if it's a pollen plant and I found that information, and comments.

Let me know if you like this change.

Another great article, Margaret.

Thank you.

Enjoy the links too. Oh and I've been meaning to go back to your last article with the nectar plants...there were some that constantly reproduce nectar & I want to try to grow those in my garden! Big Grin
