    Cool Flower Watch 2015

    I thought there would be a flower watch thread already. Time to start one! Share your flowers!

    I wanted to post this video I took today. In all my years of growing Sarrs here in California, I have never seen them be pollinated by the wild critters here. For the first time today, I saw a bumble bee doing it's thing with my Sarrs. It really liked the Catesbaei I got from Andrew/FlyTrapShop long ago. It was so exciting to watch. The bee seemed a little confused with the Sarr flowers, but eventually got the idea, haha.



    Here are some recent shots I took. The Sarr in the first picture has got to have the tallest flower stalks on any of my Sarrs... They are nearing 24 inches in height.

    Those are some nice flowers you have there! It's going to be a few more weeks at least for me here in Oregon but I've got 10 on the way, assuming the wildlife doesn't chew off any more of the buds.

    Excellent video! I have witnessed this many times with bumble bees working my sarr flowers, but never when I have a camera handy.
