Artist's Description

Agarita (Berberis trifoliolata),
Wild Currant,\
Chaparral Berry

This little bee gave off reflections from the sun, and he looks different from the usual bees. I haven’t identified him yet. He was so beautiful!
The Agarita was used by pioneers to make yellow dye. It produces yellow flowers from February through March, and red berries from May through July. It is used for honey by honeybees and songbirds love the berries. The red berries can also be harvested to make currant jelly or wine.
