Texas Wildflowers
« on: March 29, 2011, 09:53:59 PM »
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.

most often i find my greatest source of stress to be OPS  ( other peoples stupidity )

It is better to keep ones mouth shut and be thought of as a fool than to open ones mouth and in so doing remove all doubt.
