This is a photo of my Beebalm I planted a few months ago. I asked for some ideas for plants that attract butterflies and or bees and this was one a few members had suggested. Well it has finnally started to bloom. I was told they don't bloom the first year but guess my green thumb says otherwise. HAHAHA! It has been great as far as the bees and butterflies. Well as some know the bees are arouhnd as I got stung earlier and had a discussion about it. Thanks for letting me share all things related to my garden. I have more this Sunday to write about also. Have a great day/evening all. HAPPY POSTINGS FROM GRANDPA BOB!!~

I've never heard of the beebalm plant. this is like a horticulture lesson.:) sometimes I wonder where the bees come from. How far do they travel to get to one place? Do their hives have to be in a radius of at least X kilometres?Here's a photo of a bee and a dahlia that I took whilst on holiday. I love it cos it's so bright and cheery.

I used to have beebalm, and it was great. I think hummingbirds like it too. I do not see them around here, so I do not know for sure. I will have to gather all of my gardening ideas up, and decide what I am going to do next year, as the season is past for planting this year. I always liked the fragrance of all the blooming things in my yard.
