Bee Still My Heart
Boy that bumblebee is really buzzing up a storm in there. Filtering the sunlight through a pink foxglove flower changes the bee's color.
Once outside we can see the bee is actually bright yellow with a black rear end. He's just one of several kinds of bumblebees that we see here. I think the little bee to the right of the picture is a much smaller totally different kind of bee.
For several days we have been having hot, dry weather. Ed watered some with the watering can this morning . This afternoon we got some rain courtesy of a thunderstorm. We are both feeling better and making daily progress in the garden. Weeds get pulled and planting gets done. If this garden race is like the tortoise and the hare, this year we are definitely the tortoise!
