Wow-don't live where you do. Nice pictures. So sorry no-one answered you in time.
But looks like you did just fine with'your own research and showed all of us a thing or two
in meantime. Hope your bees are doing well, I am in the learning process and could not have
helped you, but pictures are always great :)
And this is where some of my Bees go.
This one Dragon Fruit Flower has more than 15 Bees inside of it.
And there are a couple more flying around trying to land.
This was on a day when it was raining as well.
I don't keep bees either. I am actually going to make some mason bee houses soon to help pollinate my crops on my Tower Gardens. I have two dragon fruit plants, but they are small. I have no idea how long it takes for them to flower and fruit. My folks live in Lake Helen and also have a wild colony living on their property. My father mowed too close to their underground home last year and got over 50 stings. He had to go to the hospital for some meds and fluids. You can see them buzzing in and out of the ground. Kind of scary since my kids go over there to visit and could potentially end up near their hive.
