Wild Bee Balm

The wild Bee Balm is blooming in the pastures.

I was surprised at how many different ways Bee Balm can be used, from garnishing salads to relieving menstrual cramps.

I now know that so many of the flowers that grow in our pastures can be used in  many different ways besides being food for insects and animals.  And although I also know I’ll most likely never do more than look at them and maybe pick some for a bouquet, I like knowing they’re there.

  1. Beautiful!
    These used to grow every summer in the hydro field right-of-way behind the house we grew up in. We’d take a little purple piece off the bloom and suck the sweetness out of it. We had a great time in that field!
