What's All The Buzz?

See this pretty flower?  Some people call this frost weed.  Some people call this babies breath.  Whatever it is, the bee's sure do like it.

We have tons of it around here.  This plant is taller than my head.  You can hear it buzzing with all the activity.

If it would last longer and dry well, this would be pretty in a wreath.  But sadly, it doesn't last very long once it's picked.  So, I just enjoy it while it's around.

So until next time,  

Small Farm Girl,  bee watcher.

It looks like Mayweed. Invasive type of weed, with pretty little flowers. If it's the Mayweed if touched may cause a little rash. It's not good for livestock.

Willow... They are EVERYWERE this year!!!! I love it!!!!!

Sandy....Hmmmmm..It doesn't bother us when we touch it. I'm not sure about the livestock. Our mare eats it all the time. I bet it's not the same stuff. But, it could be. :0)

The honey made from these tiny asters has a different smell too. You can tell when bees have been working asters in the fall.
