05.05.07 HONEYED BLOSSOMS
One of the major populations of trees in our forest is the American Tulip Tree, Liriodendron tulipifera, commonly known as the "Tulip Poplar." One of my favorite trees because of its many beautiful stages throughout the year, now it comes forth with these large magnificent flowers. The flowers will provide plenty of work for Honey Bees which produce a dark, strong honey from the nectar.
