At last, three weeks after they came into flower, the the St Johnโ€™s Wort bushes have become a honeybee magnet. Masses of pollen being taken into the hives....look at the bright yellow legs on this girl. . . . . #hypericum #stjohnswart #plantingforhoneybees #bstreetbees #feedthebees #parklife #urbangreening #feedthepollinators #pollenpants

St. John's Wort.. . Today is St. John's Day, 24th of June, once celebrated as Midsummer and traditionally the day to harvest the flowering tops of St John's Wort.. Ours have not quite opened, but here you can clearly see the tiny black spots typical of the species and the translucent oil glands in the leaves which contain the herb's active constituent hyperforin, and gives its specific name H. perforatum (perforate St John's wort). . There are lots of species of St John's wort (Hypericum), many of which grow wild in ireland, including the medicinal H. perforatum, and they are all important wildlife plants, loved by bees and other pollinators ๐Ÿ . . #wildflowers #stjohnswort #stjohnsday #midsummer #herbalism #herbalist #herbal #plantmedicine #herbs #loveherbs #wildlife #wildlifegardening #beefood #feedthebees #herbinfo #irishwildflowers #herbgarden #herbsandspices #herbaltea #herbalteas #westcorkherbs #westcork #ireland #irish #naturalshot #herbaloils #naturalhealth #antidepressant #herbalmedicine

Lambs Ear flowers ๐ŸŒธ must be tasty ๐Ÿ˜‹ because the Bees ๐Ÿ love them! The flowers are not much to look at and some people donโ€™t let them bloom. But I enjoy the Bees theyโ€™re fun to watch. We can learn a lot from Bees.๐Ÿ’š๐ŸŒธ๐Ÿ . . . . . #bees #breakfastisserved #freeentertainment #feedthebees #beediner #pollinators #pollinatorgarden #veggiegarden #countrygarden #realgardening #homegarden #organicgardening #flowers #garden #beesofinstagram #flowersofinstgram #gardensofinstagram #homeandgarden #beekind #justbreathe
