Bees On Rhubarb

Our rhubarb was at its peak in early May and the bees loved it. Many people take off the flowers and seeds so the rhubarb does not waste energy on the seeds but we did not remove them until later.

Here is a bee on one of our rhubarb plants. This was the biggest rhubarb plant we have.

This is a good picture of the bee’s head.



In this picture you can see the bee’s pollen basket is getting filled.

Before I saw the bees on the rhubarb I didn’t know they pollinated rhubarb, now I do!
