Welcome to our backyard and our adventure into beekeeping with Top Bar Hives in Colorado. We share real-life happenings not just theory, and we hope this blog is helpful to you in your very own TBH adventure. — HB
This small bumble bee was joined by a huge Bombus Morrisoni a minute later.
Just a reminder: the Gallery shows What's Blooming in the Backyard. You can click on the album title to go to the Picasa web album, which features full-size images with captions. The album is organized by season, starting with Spring, so you might see a picture of the 'Mainacht' salvia in bloom today next to one of the same salvia blooming in June of 2008. Typically, I won't show a plant more than once unless there's something of special interest on it, such as a rare or unusual pollinator. There are a few. And there are some fun non-insect visitors, too. I invite you to check it out, and enjoy a full year of What's Blooming in the Backyard.
