Pretty excited about my nascent bee garden. The other five raised beds are vegetables but this one is mostly ornamental (there are a few herbs also) to attract my honeybees and other pollinators. (Note: this is not large enough to be significant forage for my colonies. It's more for beauty and bee-watching.) A bazillion thanks to horticulturalist Kristin Perry at the McLaughlin Garden for taking considerable time with me today to help me choose plants that are both great for pollinators and that will spread, self seed, or be dividable as this bed fills in over future seasons. I've grown vegetables for a while, but flowers?
