Basswood Flowers

 

End of season for the blossoms¬† – they are now drying for later uses. The bees love linden too. That’s the other name for basswood aka American linden, Tilia americana.¬† The British call linden “lime” which used to confuse me to no end. But by any other name, the flowers smell delicious and the bees turn them into a specially fragrant honey.
