Honeybees on nasturtium, honey myrtle and mallow.

 The hives are heavy with the scent of honey after a good summer and autumn, even so, bees will be bees and they are out and about, weather permitting.

The honeybees were on Mallow, Nov. 20th.

 I have seen bees on this flower earlier in the year too, I took this photo on Nov. 20th and then realised I didn't know exactly what plant it is! I asked on the Irish garden forum, it is
 Melaleuca squamea, honey myrtle.

The honey bees have been on the mahonia and the rosemary too.
