Friday Afternoon Garden Club 7.23.2010

It’s FAC time in The Art Garden!  Grab your favorite beverage and pull up a chair.  You didn’t really want to work this afternoon anyway, did you?  Leave a comment to join the garden party.
Today’s topic:
Got pollen?  

Gotta have pollen, of course, for fruit and seed production (AKA sexual reproduction).  Today's assignment---look at the flowers in your garden.  Can you identify the pollen? What color is it? What kinds of pollinators (bees, butterflies, birds, etc) do you see? 

Extra point bonus question: has pollen ever been used as a pigment (my inquiring mind wants to know!)?
