The current issue of Country mag. has some pics from the Texas hillcountry.  Are there any beeks here that have bees in this area and/or do these flowers make good honey.  I know the tubular shape of some prohibit honeybees but not being from the area, I was wondering if the honey matches the beauty?

i can tell you that the blue bonnet flowers that my father in law grows across his yard every spring get worked very much by my bees.

i would guess the texas bees would work em as well.
