This plant is also a favorite for my little buzzing friends. Come this time of year, those bushes are completely abuzz with Bees. It was fascinating for me as I was taking these pictures to see the different types of bees. There were of course the huge bumblebees, but amongst the honey bees, it was easy to see that there were different kinds. Some with dark bellies and some with lighter bellies. Big ones and smaller ones sticking their noses into the flowers and randomly bumping each other now and then.......fascinating.
Unfortunately the flowers on these bushes are fairly short~lived. We get to enjoy their beauty for about 2 weeks before they fade away....It's always sad to see the flowers go, but the bushes remain nice and green for the rest of the season.
With Brambler finished and heading for the blocking board today..........I think it is time to pick up Bee again after visiting with my little friends. I am looking forward to getting back to this knit for sure, along with these little cuties I discovered today. Thank you Denise for sharing the link!
