The bumblebees are enjoying the mid-summer garden, and I’m enjoying the bees! Here’s a lovely bumblebee on a hollyhock.
And here’s a bumblebee on toadflax.
And here’s a bumblebee on oregano. Can you see the flecks of pollen?
But the borage is king! It’s very peaceful sitting by the borage and watching the girls forage.
Borage can get looking a little odd later in the summer, but I always keep it going as long as possible. The bees love it so, and the little birds eat the seeds.
