    Lovely texture work Victoria, we have millions of them at our house, all the trees are budding and it’s a buzz everywhere…. lovely image :o)x

  • hey josie! how are ya? oh, golly, it’s fall here. seemed to happen over night. had the worst drought this year, then it rained some, now it’s very dry again. lake michigan (very big) is down 8’. tonight it should go down into the 20’s. that’s too cold too early. hope these little bees make it. they have suffered hive collapse & viral diseases over the last few years. many thanks for your kind words.

    Was reading an article on bees, they seem to have come to the conclusion that what is killing the bees is pesticides, need to stop using them. Weather is crazy all over Victoria, we have had such a wet winter, there is moss where I haven’t seen it before and lots of it, the forecast for our summer this year is hot and dry….:o)x

    What gorgeous dappled lighting and lovely warm tones to set off this classic bunch of flowers. Wonderful clarity and detail, especially on the bee. Well done!!

  • my thanks, christine for your super kind comment, & fave as well! was excited to see a few bees, at long last. after being absent all summer, they finally came to my gardens last month to nectar on the caryopteris, a late bloomer.
