Blue pollen?

I’m obsessed with blue pollen now after seeing this post on BeverlyBees.com. I guess there are worse things to be obsessed with. And I’m not the only one. Rusty, at Honeybeesuite is too. So I planted 250 Siberian Squill bulbs in a long row about 50 yards away from my hives. I also ordered a quarter pound each of Borage and Lacy Phacelia seeds to spread around the many vacant lots and abandoned buildings in my area. These flowers also produce blue pollen as I learned at Honeybeesuite. The thing I’m wondering is: Do these plants also produce blue nectar, leading to blue honey? It will be interesting to find out. I don’t plan on harvesting a drum of blue honey from such a relatively small planting, but it would make for a nice picture if I could find some put away in some honeycomb.
