My bees are thoroughly enjoying the eucalyptus bloom, even on a windy day! 🌬️🌳🌼🐝💛
Trees🌳 are often a forgotten source of forage, which is sad as they can be a wonderful food source for bees🐝 & other insects🐞🦋.
Here in So Cal🏄♀️, you have to be sure that forage is available for your bees YEAR ROUND📆, since the weather doesn't get cold🥶 enough to send the bees onto "hibernation"😴💤 (unlike most of the country).🇺🇲❄️🌨️
Thankfully, eucalyptus trees have blossoms🌳🌼 when other blooms are scarce; and it's a great source for both nectar & pollen during the dearth🥀 periods.
Leave a "🌳" in the comments, and let me know what other trees you've seen provide a "bug buffet"! 🐝🐞🦋😋🍽️ -Misty
