I was walking out to my mailbox and smelled the fragrance from my Golden Privet hedge. It smells wonderful. I picked some blooms and brought them inside. The house smells of the fragrance now. And of course, the bees also like it. They don’t mind me if I take my time around them. I managed to get a few shots. The hedge starts out with green leaves then they turn a golden-yellow color, then the tiny clusters of blooms appear.
This photo is a macro shot of the bee enjoying the nectar. It was swarming in bees. I would like to have more of these and they are low maintenance. And they are perennial, they always return in the spring. I will post more photos of the entire hedge later, it is about seven-eight feet tall now. It grows each year. A definite benefit to your yard or garden. Very low maintenance. Just plenty of sunshine.
Are you familiar with the Golden Privet?
