Attractive Trillium Bertold.

Comment by Bertold Brautigan on March 3, 2015 at 8:39am

@Daniel - I'm beginning to have trepidation you're trying to transact a treacly trend transcending tradition.

Lovely trillium, Bertold! All I have is a sea of white.

Daniel, I have a couple of hawthorne trees, too. The squirrels like the berries. I suppose the bees do, too. With my one Linden tree, plus the persimmon and other fruit trees, bees have much to choose from.

@Barbara Livingston, I haven't seen your name for a while and I hope all is well with you. I have been a bit busy, so may have missed any posts from you.

That trillium is truly a triumphant treasue!

Joan my 2nd beehive is just like the first. Im now working on a third one, a different type I hope I can manage better. The new one is called a Warre hive, vertical where the others are horizontal.

They do love the hawthorns. We have a Chinese Hawthorn which I hope will have a few flowers this year, and a weedy hawthorne row by a creek. My main efforts at bee forage trees were the 4 Tilia cordata / littleleaf linden, one Tilia americana / American linden, 3 new maples, a sourwood, and the fruit trees. Sounds like I am obsessed. The American linden grew like crazy last year, and had a few flowers, so maybe more this year. The littleleaf lindens also put on some good growth but I dont know if they are ready to bloom.

Daniel, did you build your second hive? I remember how pretty your first hive was but I can't remember to appearance of the second hive. When the wind blew over my Washington Hawthorn a couple of years ago, I have nothing in the garden that attracts bees like it did. I'll have to do something about that this year.

Bertold, a lovelier sight I cannot imagine. 

Comment by Bertold Brautigan on March 2, 2015 at 7:17pm

First trillium up. Always a favorite sign of spring!

Comment by Idaho Spud on March 1, 2015 at 10:44am

Joan, I just popped the snails into boiling water, pulled them out of their shells with a pick, and dipped them in salt & peppered butter.

To me, they taste delicious.

Honeybee documentary - watching now and thought I would share.

http://www.dw.de/documentaries-and-reports-what-is-killing-the-bees...

I have 2 hives.  One cleared itself out last fall - I guess they swarmed,  but might have died off.  The other survived the winter.  They didn't have much honey stored up, so I fed them sugar water through the winter.   Now they are out foraging and flying around on warm days.  Very rewarding.
