Mellowcat is all signed up for the Great Sunflower Project. The sunflower seeds aren’t in yet, but you’ll no doubt hear all about it once they go in. We have a pretty good area for bees in the front yard already; they really go for the salvia, bottlebrush, and the lantana. Not sure what kinds of bees those are, but I’ll be learning about them this summer. We once had a leaf-cutter bee living in the wood trim around our garage door. I didn’t know what it was, but the Neighbor identified it (after I’d killed it). This will be my chance to make amends with the bee world. I ran across a cool term for feral bee populations; “freebees”.
