I love this plant and so do honey bees and other pollinators; Siberian squill, Scilla siberica, also known as wood squill. It is one of a few plants that the bees gather “blue” pollen from. One of these days I will get a picture of a bee with the blue pollen on her pollen baskets. I am excited to get some and plant them at home. They bloom in early spring so you can plant them in your lawn. They are good in zone 2-8 or 10 depending on the source you read

And so it begins. The almonds are almost completely done blooming and now we must gather the bees together. We will evaluate their health and make up hives and nucs Then off to the next adventure the girls will go. Again there will be Long hours for beekeepers working nights to move the bees and days to work with them.

🙏🏼 Pray for the beekeepers, the honey bees and the almond growers as the 2019 almond pollination begins. Over 2.6 million colonies of honey bees,if they haven already, will soon be loaded on semis to travel to CA to pollinate the over 1.3 million acres of almonds. This is over 1/2 of the honey bees in the United States together with their families and employees working with many almond growers and landowners to make this happen.

Thank you Sunshine Apiary Patty and Crew. We are all set up and ready for our 2019 MACD Convention. These will be given out as raffle prizes. Each one helps towards our scholarships to send District Admins to convention and trainings.
Do you sell raw (uncooked or filtered) local honey? If so, how much is it for various container sizes. It's just for 1 person to help with allergies. Thank you
A big thank you to Patty Sundberg and Georgie Drange with #SunshineApiary of Columbus for sharing their honey bee expertise and educating young minds about this important contributor to our Ag industry! #STEMSaturday in Billings @ Lockwood Schools!
Thank you for the tour!
