    Default Crimson clover and rape/canola

    Crimson is going to seed, not many bees on them this late in the day. Leftover rape seed was sown with it, supposed to make a decent forage. I've read crimson flower is too long for bees to work but have seen them work it here.

    I think that's red clover...

    If you do a google search for red vs crimson clover and then click on the images feature there is a distinct difference. The tip of the flower in the pic could be mistaken, but note how long the flower is and the darker hue relative to red.
