The bristol website's pollen guide says it could be Lime, asparagus, buttercup or mustard. Love this pollen guide, beautifully made.....limited in range, but gives a good idea. Saving up for a more extensive guideHi all
Bees are bringing in loads of dark orange pollen any one knows what it could be.
Just went off the two darkest orange colours from the site, I agree though the buttercup and mustard one was nearer mid orange. Just gives a general idea though I thinkThe bristol website's pollen guide says it could be Lime, asparagus, buttercup or mustard.
Could also be rockrose, field scabious, lime and buttercups i think are orange as opposed to deep orange. Di
Oh yes, now u mention it, v b does look blue, just very dark on my guide. I thought o p was black and guide says rb wh is dark green, but ours has nearly finished flowering and the only green ive noticed i thought was meadowsweet??? :.)There are 3 on here, rosebay willow herb, vipers bugloss and oriental poppy. so I may see some soon if I'm lucky as we have lots of rosebay willowherb coming into flower
Thanks bothOP looks very dark blue, almost black on this one, and rbwh looks blueish green, quite dark though. Like you said, just depends on the printing and colour interpretation of the person making the guide. I intend to use it only as a guide and just check what's growing in abundance near me, then try and come to a conclusion. Fun though.
It's nicely laid out isn't it, but like I said before, not much range. Did it look like anything on there?Thanks both
I have had some Willow herb coming in and tons of himalayan balsam , but I have had another look its deffo dark orange colour not bright at all .
The Bristol link is realy intresting
Phacelia is a similar gorgeous colour.That's a great picture of the business end of a bee I've not seen anything like that yet....I can't wait too though. What is it? RBWH or O Poppy? Those are the closest I can find on my rather naff pollen guide lol
PS Ahhh, just seen the RBWH in the background lol, might be a clue
