A beautiful Bee Balm bloom

A singular Bee Balm flower blooms in my garden. But this bloom is large and exquisite. I am certain, as the season progresses, there will be many more. This one bloom though, with it's rounded head of tubular flowers, is so loved by the bees, butterflies and other nectar seeking creatures. This one bloom is a way-station for them as spring turns to summer.

Bee Balm is also called Monarda, wild bergamot and Oswego tea. Native American used it to make tea.

Plant Mondara and you will make many nectar seeking creatures happy.
