let it bee

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”.
