The Bees Were Crazy This Morning


When I went out to my front yard this morning to look at my flowers I saw that the bees went totally crazy about the poppies. At least one bee was sitting in each poppy, but in many there were two or more bees circling around eager to get to the nectar.



There was a steady humming in the air. One thing's for sure - there is no bee crisis in my meadow.


There are still more poppies opening, the beauty is not ending yet.

Wow. And your photos of the bees in bee bliss were amazing. I never seem to be able to capture them - except by accident.

How wonderful, Carola. All that lovely pollen.
The bees have finished with our ornamental crabapple tree now. The whole tree was a-buzz with them last week.
Your photos are just beautiful.

Stunning photos again, Carola! So pleased to hear you have got a good number of bees. There seem to be very few here yet. Keep the photos coming - it makes me think our summer will eventually arrive!
