    This is not a great picture, but the phone is all I have.

    This is growing out in the garden mixed in with the henbit. It's little blue and white flowers. The bees are tearing it up today. Does anyone know what it is?

    I don't know the name of the wild flowers but I have them in my yard also, hope some one can name them. My bees have been shut up for 2 days in the hive because of the rain we got. Today was beautiful, sun and 69 degrees and the girls was really out and about.

    I think it's Dead Nettle, that and henbit come on about the same time here and are hard to tell apart. Jack

    How about Persian Speedwell" Veronica Persica"? It's in my yard along with Henbit and Dead Nettle this time of year- tiny blue flowers.
