Bees from the summer

Thought it was about time for another splash of color in the dreary winter.

These were taken on a Blanket Plant bloom. I love the Blanket Plant, because it is so bright and pretty. Also because it attracts the bees and the butterflies.

This last photograph is a bee again, but I do not know the name of the plant it is on. I would appreciate the name if anybody knows what it it. It is shaped like a little bush, but it does not continue to grow in height. It does spead out, and does seem to multiple fairly fast. It came from the yard of the house John and Lindsey had when they first married. The leaves turn a beautiful mix of yellow/orange/red in the fall.

The bee is so clear in each of your photos! That blanket flower is so gorgeous! I hope someone identifies the last bloom for you.

Leedra: Those were so nicely done, I love to get the little bees as they work the flowers.

Great 'bee' pictures, Leedra. I especially like the last one since I can see the bees better.. They blend into the first two, don't they???

Snowing in the Glade this morning.. You got it too???
Hugs,
