The Bee Balm is Alive!

Gardening

The original seedlings for the bee balm that I planted last year were, unfortunately, grew too tall and not leafy enough, eventually catching some type of mildew several months after being planted in the ground. I thought that was the end of them, but I’ve found patches of their lemony-scented leaves all over my little flower patch this year, and it looks so much healthier! I have bee balm again, and I am overjoyed. I’ve liked this flower since I was a child, and it is a flower beloved by pollinators. Hopefully, this year it will bloom and bring all the little bees to my garden, where they’ll stop by the vegetables and increase my harvest.
