sc-bee--here in Lexington SC not too far away from you my bees are putting up something, I saw cells being filled. Also saw bees working Lespedeza and Rag weed for the last week or so. Not sure what they get from each of these but the ones on Rag Weed were packing in the pollen.  I see golden rod blooming but a local beek said bees dont work it that much. I do know in SC just a few miles makes a big difference in plants. I'm still new at this so dont hold me to much of this LOL.

Here in the south its Sericea Lespedeza or Lespedeza cuneata, another one of those introduced invasive plants. After learning to identify wildflowers in my area I found out that lots of the wildflowers we have are not native.
