Comment: This Little Joe attracts the most unusual bees, all who were very peaceful. But the most fun was the different species that I didn't know were local to Long Island. My favorite was the Gray Hairstreak, how unusual! And a few others I didn't recognize. I have 2, will put more out back as I make more room for perennials.
