Attracting Bees to your Yard

Cosmos have to be the easiest annual I have grown here in Austin. All you need to do is chuck some seeds on a sunny garden bed. I’ve done that at any old time of the year and gotten plants eventually. Cosmos are also great at reseeding themselves and spreading through the yard.

Bees love cosmos! The buzz all day long around the blossoms. I took a bunch of images over the past few days and picked my favorites.

Here’s a bee crawling from blossom to blossom on a sunny afternoon:

And here’s one on a cloudy day (yesterday) stuffing its face:
