I love seeing and hearing the bees buzz and bumble about the garden. . .
I chalked up my Potting Shed door with a favorite quote by Elizabeth Lawrence:
“The hum of bees is the voice of the garden.”
A garden with bees is a happy garden. . .
Bees on sunflowers . . .
Bees on Obedient Plant. . .
Bees on Daylilies. . .
Bees on Veronica (Speedwell)
Bees drunk on Passion flower and sleeping off the *buzz* ;)
Female bumblebees and honey bees have pollen baskets to collect the pollen grains to return to the nest for their offspring. You can see the how full the pollen basket is on the bumblebee above on the Obedient Plant. . .
And see the pollen basket is visible on this female bumblebee on the Lamb’s Ear.
