It's March, the month spring officially arrives according to the calendar. Mother Nature might have different plans, but plants are bursting forth with renewed growth and the cool weather plants are blooming, bringing joy to everyone. Honey bees have built up their numbers and are busy taking advantage of the bountiful supply of food.

Add to that list 'African Basil. I had one plant last year and had honey bees, several kinds of native bees and several kinds of wasp.
Just get 4 of them in the mail today. Going to have fun taking pictures of all the feeding bees this summer

|Yes, they are on the move here too. So great to see them. Things are blooming all over the place since we've had such a warm winter. The Bradford pear trees are stunning in full bloom now ... and just full of bees. |

|I'm sure there's a lot of plants not listed that are blooming for them. Don't want to run out of plants to list for next year|
Be sure to list any you have that's blooming and has bees on them.
jnorth what a lovely picture. they got orange pollen from that plant so you helped them with feeding those babies and making royal jelly for the queen.

| The main attractions right now for the bees are the Bigtooth Maple, Mexican Buckeye and Texas Ash trees. Not that there's not others they go to, but that's the top three. I think the bees in Texas will make a good comeback this year.|
