Honey Bees and Dandelions

 Good morning,

If you look at the flower toward the bottom of the image, you'll see a honey bee hard at work collecting pollen.

To be sure the honey bees have enough pollen to harvest, many environmentalists encourage us to leave our dandelions alone rather than "weeding" our gardens.

An interesting note about dandelions:  they were originally planted to provide salad greens, but managed to spread so profusely that they became known as weeds.

Ah, yes, Spring....
