I was on my way home from work this evening and saw a field of what I initially thought was alfalfa. But the alfalfa bloom has not quite started and this field was full of these pink blossoms. I stopped and plucked a stalk of blossoms that were growing on a very alfalfa-like plant. Here are a couple links to the photos. Anyone know what is is and if it is a good nectar source for bees?

hey cool
must be that the stuff i have planted around the house is just a little too shaded, it's growing well but is not quite ready to bloom.
i am guessing the road you are refering too is the one that kicks off where the beet dump is on the south side of the highway. someone had a bunch of hives out there on the east side of town last year. i have not traveled that route so i don't know if they are back again.
on a side note i just made a split on my tbh and placed them south of town down on the wilwood :D, friend of mine has 130 acres of alphalpha seed he is raising this year so they should do fine providing it quites raining every 4 or five days :cry:
