Still some honeybees here

It’s pretty sad that I can get excited about seeing more than one honeybee at a time, but there we are. No clue where their hive is. They seem to like climbing way deep into flowers, so lately I have lots of pictures of bee butts.

Right now, the most popular flower is the tall purple stalks of liatris shooting up here and there. I see two or even three at a time buzzing around it. This is even better than watching the tiny Ceratina carpenter bees sup on the veronica. A flower I planted on purpose and honeybees like it. Yay!

    Now I am envious. I have never been able to grow catnip to maturity. A cat (feral, pet, neighbor’s) has always found the plants. Once a cat has found a catnip plant, it (the plant, not the cat) gets totalled within three days.

    lol! We put a cage around catnip plants. I’ll try to find a picture.
