There’s a Bee in My Ivy!

There’s a bee in my ivy and, in fact,  there are millions of bees at this time of year in ivy along the Monterey Coast. Our backyard has been no exception, especially since the ivy blooms are next to our hives. The monarch butterflies are due to arrive in a few weeks, but from the looks of things, the bees have a big head start on collecting nectar from the ivy flowers. While ivy can be an invasive vine, it remains the main food source for honey bees at year’s end.
