Bees on Rosemary

What a delightful contrast in colors.

Deep green leaves spear from mottled brown stalks.

Powdery blue flowers under inspection from our winged hero – honey bee.

Bees enjoy white flowered rosemary just the same.

Dappled sun over gentle breeze. Stir and serve an Autumn treat.

white flowers attract bees

The white┬árosemary flowers will last through the Winter, and attract any bees that happen to be foraging at that time. Help a bee – it helps us all.

  1. We have a Rosemary bush in each of our raised vege patch. I keep it trimmed to it wont grow too big. Have dried them and stored the rosemary for cooking.

    • That sounds great, plenty of bees at your place I’d guess.
      Rosemary is such a useful plant to have in the garden and even things like getting some of it indoors in cupboards can make a difference.
      Have also seen sprigs of it hanging in toilets!

    • Hi mate good to hear from you. Am just trying out buckwheat this year and started on the clover at the start of our last Spring. The bees do love it, but not bare footed children!
