Fall is here - you can feel it in the air. And the honeybees are busy doing what they do best with the last of the flowers.

Ever wonder if they can taste the flavors?  Does peppermint make a delightful nectar?


  1. Not sure if bees really taste the peppermint or not--but I love peppermint and so does my tummy!!

  2. I'm trying to grow mint on our balcony right now but still rather hot for it. As the temps get cooler around here, planting season will begin and we will see more bees and butterflies and dragonflies. Can't wait! Have a good week!

  3. I just love going out to visit the bees. They always put a smile on my face.

  4. Thank you for sharing a lovely bee-on-flower photo!! My neighborhood bees will have to wait until next summer to find much in my scalped yard, but I expect them to be back in droves to suck from all the new flowers I'm going to have.
