Last year the annual bee keeping picnic was held at the 4-H center in Greeneville, TN. As we were eating Dennis and I noticed so pretty red blooms covering a field near the shelter. We were told it was crimson clover and that the bees were very fond of it. It is also a good ground cover and green manure plant. So, when faced with so large bare areas at our home, we planted crimson clover last fall. It has bloomed. The bees and we are enjoying its colorful flower. The very tips turn a lavendar that matches the iris. . .who knew?









Rain fell yesterday causing everything to "pop" this morning. So pretty.
