Went out to the bee yard this morning to check on the girls and see how they were doing. Out in the pasture areas and along the fence rows I found this beautiful and unusual flower. It has two large blue petals and then an open spot on the bottom. Looked it up and it's called the Dayflower.

Didn't see the bees working any of these flowers. Anyone know if bees like these flowers for nectar?

Can't tell from your pic, we have one here we call spiderwort, it may be the same plant. Our bees love it. You walk through some in the A.M. and listen to the hum of happy bees

Spiderwort was another common name for the plant. I forgot about that until you said it. Found it when I Googled blue flowering plants in Texas.

I was out around 9-10 a.m. Perhaps I need to be there early in the morning that 9.

Perhaps. I've noticed them foraging it most over the morning coffee. They sure enjoy it. Good luck
