Bees Knees….Somewhere.

 
18.8.2013 (15)

The Echinops in the Tidy Garden this year were bigger & better than ever before.

Those fretting about the decline in bee numbers needn’t have panicked. They were all in our back yard clambering over each other to get to get the best spot on each thistly flower head.
On some evenings, when the sun had dipped, I’d have to prod some of our fuzzy friends gently who seemed to have fallen asleep, intoxicated in the sweet nectar. Like a pub landlord yelling ‘Haven’t you got homes to go to?!’

Some were just plain stupid. Yes, underneath all that pollen was a bee who hadn’t learnt the art of bagging up its bounty.
Not quite sure if he ever made it home or crash landed somewhere with excess baggage.
Now is it me or did summer fly by this year?

Beautiful blooms! And that last photo is hilarious. That bee must have rolled around in the flower! And yes, this summer flew by - way, way too fast!

That bee looks like it's been dunked in pollen! I wonder if a few friends had to tow it back to the hive. :o)

Great picture of the Echinops Jane, clearly that bee couldn't get enough of a good thing.

"Last call for alcohol! LOL! I enjoyed your lovely and entertaining post, Jane. What a beautiful flower bed in the first photo! Also, what type of lens were you using to get the second fab photo of one of the garden drunkards? Yes, the summer did fly by (it's not just you). :-)

Oh my... that bee does have too much baggage. Must be an over-achiever.
