Here are some of the first pictures I took with that camera I was so excited about Friday. I was almost as excited to see my peonies weather a few days of rain without all the petals falling off. Too bad there’s no room for bees to get into them. That’s okay. I’ve got other flowers for the bees.
Right now this bladder campion is probably the best nectar source in my yard, even if it is a weed. Hopefully, by the time they stop flowering, there might be sunflowers for the bees. The seeds came from The Great Sunflower Project. The idea is to plant sunflowers and watch to see which bees visit them. They seem overwhelmed by the response, but they’re still accepting participants until June 15.
