Here is a honey bee on Russian sage. They have been loving the Russian sage and it's right by our front door step so I watch them all the time.
In other news, we have finally started extracting honey!!! I don't have any photos yet but they're coming soon. We bottled the first of this year's honey crop today and will have it for sale at the market in Toronto tomorrow. I'm planning a honey tasting so hopefully the yellow jackets will leave us alone.
