Ohio Buckeye


Every year, just after the Dandelion bloom, the Ohio Buckeye, also known as the Horse Chestnut, explodes with blossoms that are a veritable feast - an orgy of pollen for the bees. For about 10 days, standing under one of these fabulous trees is like being transported into a beehive. The bees go about their business and are not the least bit interested in your presence. Later in the year when the seedpods develop into nuts, the squirrels raid the tree. Occasionally, when the squirrels are stressed, they like to eat the bark of the Ohio Buckeye. Needless to say that does not win them any Brownie points at Medovina!
