    Was it a native plant. Or something someone planted.

    A few shrubs with yellow blooms come to mind: Primrose, Winter Honeysuckle,
    Forsythia, Partridge Pea etc.

    Thank you for the great discussions.

    Of course bees love flowerly vegetation including coffee as a means to collect hector. Sustainable livelihoods through a project titled " Fruit tree growing and community forestry project" in Kiboga district in Uganda.

    The objective of the project is to improve the livelihoods of local people and contribute to conservation of the environment by promoting fruit tree growing and community forestry. The project will encourage and assist local people to plant different types of fruit trees, including avocado, mango and guava as well as other tree species for forest products (firewood, timber, fodder and non-timber products) and services in the area.

    The project will supplement the smallholder beekeeping project in the area as the trees will provide shade and nector.The primary target of the project is to establish at least two community tree nurseries to raise and plant over 12,000 tree seedlings per year for two years.

    This project needs support to be upscaled. For more information about the project please contact: slint-uganda@slint.org or denimasha@yahoo.com

    Also visit the on line volunteers on the Global Neighbour Network (nabuur.com): http://www.nabuur.com/en/village/butikiro where SLINT-Uganda is enabling local people realise this dream. You are also encouraged to join in.

    When you say summer flowering, do you mean late June or August?

    I guess we need more details before we can take a guess.

    Look up St Johnswort. It's not uncommon to see 5-6 bees on a bloom. The bushes are loaded with bees when in bloom.
