bee sighting



I’m so excited. As I was coming home from the studio, I was admiring my bed of blue muscari (grape hyacinths) and yellow mini-daffodils glowing in the warm afternoon sun by the front steps. I went inside for my SLR camera and came out again. As I began to focus, lo, there was this busy bee. I managed two decent photos before it flew away. The slight breeze even paused at the right moments. Just look at the pollen on its body! How lucky can one get? I wonder what kind of bee it is, I don’t think it’s a mason….

PS: I’d like to wish all my readers a happy, sunny and warm spring or fall equinox tomorrow! I think we’ll be out working in the garden, taking advantage of the glorious sunny weather before the next wave of rains moves in Sunday. And I’m late getting my seeds started so no time for blogging!
