So I have noticed many bees landing in a flower pot and doing something on the soil. Anyone have a clue as to what's up? There are other water source's in the yard and as to the plant in the pot it is not blooming.

They are after minerals.I keep a little mineral salt around my colonies.It helps keep the grass down and gives them a source of minerals.Some old beekeepers put mineral salt in bottle caps inside the hive as in slide then in through the entrance..
