Now these are my kind of flowers! I have noticed that the bees prefer veggie flowers over flower flowers!

The bees are much slower to appear here but I expect they will get a bit more energetic now it is warming up.
What lovely photos, Maggie.... please send my regards to the photographer!

I love the picture of the bee. With your permission I have used it on our nonprofit school garden website. I have given you credit and put a link there too.
You can see it at

Please let me know if this is not okay.

Thank you!--Melissa

In natural conditions, soil acts as a mineral nutrient reservoir but the soil itself is not essential to plant growth. Hydroponics farmer may be limited in growing crops that either give a high return or rapid turn-over. I am thankful to drop by and read some of great ideas and learn new things.
