On the morning walk I discovered honey bees visiting this plant - check out the crisp iPhone photo. We purchased this flowering perennial too, but I lost track of its name. I eventually found the plant on an Internet search - spiderwort. My garden books were not helpful - perhaps Walter Reeves will consider a Georgia book for beekeepers?
The neighborhood stinks of flowering Privet which started to bloom a few days ago. A few front yards (without herbicides) contain tons of white clover. Has my big honey crop year hit a bump? - is the bee population in or out of sync with the weather and flowering plants? - four inches of rain in three days was ridiculous! - these are the uncertainties of the honey harvest.
