Locusts and Wild Honey(3), by John Burroughs

Yet evidently it is not the perfume of any flower that attracts the bees; they pay no attention to the sweet-scented lilac,or to heliotrope, but work upon sumach, silkweed and the hateful snapdragon. In September they are hard pressed and do well if they pick up enough sweet to pay the running expenses of  their establishment. The purple asters and the goldenrod are about all that remain to them.
