I had a wonderful break in the weather a couple of days ago,
clear skies and beautiful blooms on the garden wall.
The cone flowers stand out right now, typically
covered with bumbles that flit from cone to cone.
I noticed only one of these little guys and found the other
when I moved the photo to my computer.
Click to enlarge.
They are sitting on one of the flowering weeds that
are very invasive and try to take over the garden.
Some get to stay because they are pretty.
My rose, which seems to be a hedge type, blooms
furiously in the spring and then not much happens
but I do see some new growth now.
There are some peaches remaining that the squirrels
and deer didn't get; however, I don't spray them so
they end up all buggy. Funny, one side looks ripe
and the other is just as green as it can be.
Even weeds are interesting if caught at the right moment.
As I was finishing up some photos of flowers and bees
I heard what appeared to be heavy traffic traveling at
a high rate of speed on the county road down the way.
Then I realized I should not hear THAT MUCH traffic out here.
Then it dawned on me . . .
I scampered to the porch just in the nick of time.
It came down in buckets, for all of about 15 minutes
and then it was sunny once more.
Those poor bees drinking on the fountain edge.
I hope they flew away in time!
