Jal: yeah, I do have to water frequently. The pot does not hold much unless I want to drown the roots. I'm going to do raised beds next year.
That poor little bee! She kept coming back all day, but the flower had wilted in the afternoon heat and she kept buzzing around it like mad, going to the nasturtiums and back, but she'd gotten what she could off of those, too. I felt so sorry for her. I mean, maybe there were more bees, but I only ever saw one at a time.
Iamafan: that is an exciting thought. I'm going to look into it.
ETA: Applestar, I'm glad I never throw out old stockings! I keep thinking I'll find a use for them. ;p
