In Your Own Front Yard

 
I watched as two types of bees were attracted to this Coneflower bed and enjoyed the buildup of pollen on their legs. They were very small,one under a quarter inch and the other half as small, but pleasant to watch as they enjoyed the day with me.It was going to be an active day with the start kayaking, then swimming and finally fishing.I took my extra boat hoping to find someone to join me, but all were too busy.I found beauty all around, but the best right in the yard.

  1. Sometimes, they become so laden with pollen, it's difficult to imagine how they can possibly fly!!

  12. We had coneflowers and then they were gone and have never re loomed, but I do recall bees enjoying the pollen collecting. Nice to see yours are doing well, Steve.
