Fingers crossed but I think the last cold snap here in Kennesaw Georgia has come and gone. A front moved through last night and the wonderful drenching it brought has knocked the pollen from the air ... at least temporarily. Azaleas and dogwoods are done ... sigh. But star jasmine smells beautiful, wild geranium is photogenic and the newest daylily additions wintered really well-the slide show shows what's been recently added to the Rita Bees website. Others were added last fall so check it out, pls.
Star Jasmine blooming now!
'H. Lava Flow' scape forming
Oh! I'd be remiss to not tell you that Rita's Bees are prolific this Spring especially the Binnie1 hive. The Heidi hive is doing OK but her progeny, the hive named Yodel, is going gangbusters! 3 other splits are queenright - that's the most I can ask of them. ('Queenright' for a split means a new mated queen is laying and the workers are producing wax and drawing comb. Oh, My Gourd! I shouldn't have started talking bee-talk. It's nearly impossible for me to stop! But I will.
