As you can see in this photo the white stripe comes from the Himalayan Balsam pollen :) thats all,
no big deal :)
The ladies dig the blondie look at this time of the season ;)
Most countries find this plant specie "invasive". I have no clue what they
are talking about since they a TERRIFIC source of nectar and pollen for
both our Honeybees and Bumblebees. I find mono-crop agriculture highly
invasive yet our governments aren't doing much about it.
That said, I will be propagating this fabulous plant which is
flowering so late in the season when very little is. They are
priceless for the bees. I started collecting seeds from it :)
I'm guerilla, invading the planet with bee friendly plants ;)
These seed pods explode on the touch and for this reason
I gently close the pods into my palm where they explode, otherwise
they scatter all over the place.
