Well, Tom, as the adage has it  --  seeing is believing!

Toward the end of bloom season, I also mentioned that there were hardly any
bee pods this year.  There must have been a bee listening that took offense
at that, rushed back to the hive and put out the word, because within a
week, they had made up for the inactivity of the rest of the season.  This
may be the first year that I don't harvest bee pods  --  unless they're on
especially important plants!--  Griff
