Gardens + Bees = <3

Urban Bee Gardens.

They have some good articles, and a list of bee friendly flowers. So how compatible are the bees and the garden?

We've got Borage, Marigold (teeny seedlings anyway!), California Poppy, Lavender, Scented Geranium, Sage, "Hot Lips" Salvia, Mint, Zucchini, Echinacea, Oregano, Rosemary, and Thyme.

If the birds don't eat the seeds, we should have Brush Sunflowers.

I'm surprised Marjoram isn't on the list. Many a summer afternoon I've sat and watched them work over the tiny purple flowers. Strawberries are also not on the list, but I'm pretty sure they are pollinated mostly by bees.

Awesome. :)
