I’m getting ready to shoot a new video this year with a full garden tour, but I wanted to share this video with the guys following the bee projects I’ve started. This was the back meadow last year, and it looks even more amazing this year. My honeybees are working it so hard that the whole meadow buzzes and you can hear it from the porch now.

Nice video matt. I’ve cleared areas within my timber for clover. Maybe the wildflower thing will work there. I don’t have any “open” land as yours.

The company I bought my seeds from has a full shade, wildflower mix for the midwest: http://www.americanmeadows.com/wildflower-seeds/midwest/shade-wildflower-seed-collection

The nice thing about these mixtures is that every few weeks, another variety blooms, so starting mid June, all the way to September you have colorful flowers.

Thanks for the link Matt. I’ll have my Wife look at it, she’s a plant/flower expert.
