Oregano Buzz

The oregano is blooming. A tidier gardener might have been tempted to trim it back, but I'm not tidy, plus I'm fascinated by this herb's frequent visitors of late.

The oregano patch starts each morning quietly, in the shade. When the sun comes out, the entire patch lights up with buzzing.  Bumblebees can't resist this delicate white bloom. 

Honeybees are equally drawn to these frilly cups, and it's fascinating to watch them forage.

I'm hoping some of that oregano flavor makes its way into the honey this year. 

Happy Friday from Chase!
