I recently got a bunch of dried butterfly pea flowers because they make a very beautiful blue color. Most recently I decided to make some mango sticky rice with them, to make the rice blue!
Today, Doc and I went to the native bee talk at Heiðrún Meadery, up in West Marin today. It was great, we got to learn a lot about native bees, and then we got to walk around and look at native bees and catch them to look at them (and then release them, of course). Doc even caught a cuckoo bee!
Everybody looked around a lot for bumblebees, because supposedly it is the season for there to be lots of them, but we did not see any bumblebees (surprising, too, because at my office in Marin I see bumblebees all the time). Oh, well. We saw at least 5 other species of native bees, though!
The lecture also coincided with oyster Sunday at the meadery, so we got to have oysters and mead as well.
