|Bumblebee on French Marigold. 7.11.15|
French marigolds, moderately.
|Bumblebee on borage. 7.11.15|
I have lilies, daylilies, and nasturtiums in bloom. No bees are foraging those plants.
I also observed honeybees on squash blossoms. They are open briefly, and somewhat hidden under the leaves. They don't forage enough to guarantee pollination of the female flowers. So I do that by hand.
Chives and cilantro finished blooming. Bumblebees and honeybees foraged those heavily. I cut off the chives, hoping for second bloom. I am letting the cilantro go to seeds so I can save seeds, and have a big source for free instead of buying more.
