Golden Marjoram

The pinkish marjoram flowers are not very big but they seem to be very attractive to my neighbour's bees. Maybe it is the smell. There were several domestic bees as well as two or three bumble bees sucking up one of their last nectar hits of the year as I snipped off a couple of handfuls of non flowering sprigs for drying. I will hang these in the kitchen and once they have dried out thoroughly I will strip off the desiccated leaves and grind them down before placing the resultant powdered herb in an airtight container.
