I just spend 5 days in Santa Monica visiting my brother and celebrating my birthday. After months of 100 plus degree weather in Austin, Santa Monica was a welcome respite, and it was amazing to see so many plants that are actually green and blooming. This drought in Texas almost made me forget what flowers actually look like.
I’m sure being a beekeeper in Santa Monica has its unique challenges, but the bees were out in full force while I was there and had their pick of so many different types of blooms. I have no idea what this plant is, but the bees certainly were all over it.
