You must have bee hives nearby. Bees are kind of scarce this season. Lovely flowers J. 🙂
No hives nearby that I know of, but we are in “apple country” here in Central Massachusetts, so maybe that’s why there are so many bees around.
Thanks for visiting!
Long live the flowers, and long live the pollinators!
These are really beautiful images, Julie. Great to see so many bees too – it’s comforting to know that many are still thriving!
Thanks you! It’s also a positive to focus on, as heer on the East Coast, we have been instructed to take down bird feeders and bird baths because of a mysterious disease that is hitting birds. It hasn’t made it to Massachusetts yet, but southern states are seeing birds, especially young birds, dying and without reason. Very scary, and so very quiet in my yard without the 3 bird baths filled!
I haven’t heard about that, it is scary. Hope it soon dies out
I love the vibrancy and color and bees in this post, Julie. Really beautiful.
Thank you, Jet! This was a fun one to walk around the yard and photograph!
A few months ago we had very few honey bees visiting our garden. Happily though there were several species of solitary bees and hoverflies visiting the flowering plants. Anyway in the last several weeks honey bees are returning, and it is so comforting to see them again and in the company of the other bees and pollinators that continue to be around. I enjoyed your colourful and cheering photos.
I am glad your honey bees are returning! Around here, we have both honey bees and bumble bees, and I am so glad they have been abundant this year!
