In July/August blackberries bloom and flowers provide great food for bees.  Blackberry flowers are great providers for bees.  They provide both nectar and pollen to bees.  For us, Blackberries are great eating and make tasty jams and jellies.

But watch out!  Blackberries will easily take over and are tough to get rid of because of their extensive root system.

If the hot weather holds, I will be picking more blackberries soon.
