Here are some pics of a ranch I have bees on these days. The small plant is the Blue Curls, listed by Richter as the best fall honey plant in California. The hills are turning green with it right now. Looks real dry but the hills are thick with the plants.

Ca is such an aggravating state.... but it is so beautiful that all is forgiven, sort of like some women I have known - or wish I knew.

I wish we had some yards like that, seems like we are always back in the swamp.

Thanks for the pics

No deserts... yup - a few deserts and we would be the perfect state! Just something about deserts that have always amazed me... so much hidden life there.... guess its because I have so little experience around them. A volcano or two somewhere near by would not be bad either - come to think of it SC may already have a few (politicos - <grin>)

Elwood, if I knew I wouldn't tell. I have 2nd edition Hive & Honeybee, numerous subsequent old editions, old ABJs, etc., but have never found a copy of Honey Plants of California, M.C. Richter, pub I think 1926. If you find one for sale let me know! :)

I have a copy. I'll mention it for you in my will. You should only have wait another 30 or 40 years. I also have a pickup load of old ABJs and Gleanings, you want those also.

Hey, Elwood that would be real nice of you.

Maybe a little sage, I'm not really sure, I'm still looking for the blooms on the sage. We have some bottle brush and mustard right now. Whatever it is their makin, it's coming in water white. The buckwheat is just getting started here.
