When the flower blooms,
the bees come uninvited.
One step outside the door and you can’t miss the sights or sounds of our end-of-summer garden… the constant flitting and steady hum of insect wings. Summer vegetable blossoms for the most part have slowed or stopped with our cool days and even chillier nights, but the herbs and wildflowers are blooming like mad and our hungry garden dwellers couldn’t be more pleased! The steady hum of activity begins early and lasts until sundown.
With less than five minutes to spare this morning before our crazy daily rush began, I took a quick walk through our gardens with camera in hand to see what all the buzz is about. It’s really fascinating to realize how many bees, flies and wasps alone there are visiting our blooms each day!
There are more, many more. It will be a fun challenge to see how many I can find… and hopefully identify! Happy gardening!
