Sweet Williams (Dianthus barbatus) (HB) are fantastic flowers for bees. An old cottage garden favourite, bees are attracted to the pink or white flowers and we love the perfume! They are members of the dianthus family, as are Pinks and Carnations, all of which are good for the bees.
I found out by reading today that there are as many as three
hundred unique types of honey in the United States, each originating from a
different floral source. Some of the more common kinds you may have heard of,
such as clover, alfalfa, tupelo, orange blossom (I think I’ll take that one),
and apple blossom. How about onion
The honey bees are obsessed with the spherical-shaped Walla
Walla Sweet flowers in the garden. They buzz about, drunkenly addicted to the
delicious onion blossoms. It’s easy to photograph them – all you have
to do is point your lens at a flower, and within a second or two a honey bee will
appear in the frame.
I don’t think there are any bee farms out there churning out
onion honey for the grocery stores, but I bet there’s some strange tasting honey
brewing in a nearby hive.
So, earlier when I was writing my post about Eggsy and Tilde, I realized that I need a whole separate post about how Eggsy loves and respects women.
So here, have a gifset of Eggsy loving and respecting the women in his life. And also, have me telling you why every gif here is a good example (as well as discussing a few scenes that aren’t pictured). The wall of text under this read more is akin to the Great Wall of China. Beware.
