Most of my outdoor time today was spent by a large patch of jewelweed early this morning. The leaves of the plants were dotted with dew glittering in the sun. I’m not sure but I think that’s why it’s called jewelweed. Another name for it is the spotted touch-me-not. The flowers attract the Ruby Throated Hummingbird, and long-tongued bees such as honeybees and bumblebees. This morning the jewelweed was a-buzz and humming with thousands of bees.
