Sometimes you never can tell…

Austin is probably having one of the best springs in recent memory, and it seems everything is in bloom right now. Sometimes though, plants you think bees would be all over are completely ignored for something more mundane.

Take the photo below. This is from my backyard along my fence. One half of the fence is covered in jasmine in full bloom, and the other is wax leaf ligustrum from my neighbor’s yard which is a common builder’s shrub (also an invasive plant for Austin). Which one was covered in bees? If you guessed the jasmine, you are wrong. The bees were all over the shrub, and as you can see, even the butterflies were getting in on the action.
