Baskets of Blue

It felt pretty chilly out there to me this morning but the honeybees couldn’t resist the sunshine. Did you know that there is blue pollen out there for honeybees to collect?

And where does blue pollen come from? This pollen is coming from the Siberian Squill that appears in early spring. Wonderful!

  1. Awesome picture. I didn’t know thee was blue pollen, but again, why wouldn’t there be pollen in many different colors.
