Because May 10th was the 100th consecutive day of the “Bee-a-Day” on this site, I decided to celebrate by posting 100 bees that day. I kinda got carried away. Final tally: 150 bees posted, 10 bonus (quasi-)pollinators, and one beebaby iris.
The fourth of four finally opened today – here it is. So…we had a pod of bee-bred iris seeds, planted them, and they flowered this year. They’re all from the same pod – siblings – yet are very different. The other three can be found here and here and here. Neat stuff. My favorite is the purple, but this one is plenty neat itself.
