Pineapple Sage

The pineapple sage (Salvia elegans) is blooming right now in the garden and the bees just love it.  I was out this morning and bees, bumblebees and all sorts of other insects were on the plant.  We're going to have some cold weather in the next couple of days - maybe our first frost.

Feeding Bees

Hive #6
Checked the hives again around the first of October.  Hive #6 was a little on the lean side so I'm feeding that hive now.  All the other hives looked fine.
