Yesterday afternoon and well into the evening I spent some time outside in the garden.
It was a beautiful day so Chris encouraged me to bring out the laptop (since I was trying to make a few posts on my sites!). We also brought our dog outside with us to enjoy the garden.
It didn’t take me long to get out the camera. I hadn’t taken any photos of what’s been blooming in the garden fora while. As I was taking pictures I came across this big Bumble Bee nestled within some Phlox blooms. It was just taking it’s time collecting pollen so I was able to take several pictures of it.
There were quite a few bumble bees buzzing around the garden, visiting all of the flowers that were in bloom. Each year it seems we have quite a few bees, butterflies and moths fluttering around all the plants. There’s usually some wasps as well, but I try to stay clear of them!
I’m actually allergic to bee stings, but (crossing my fingers) I haven’t been stung since I was a teen! Hopefully my luck holds out.
