Sunday safari.......

It is dull today....not bug weather........the birds are hiding in the trees. In this garden though you will always find the bees working when the weather is dry.
Sure enough they were easy to find......

and very pretty they looked to. Hope you are all having a sunny Sunday.......

If you're ever asked, say on a game show, what flower blooms at the same time the world over, you can say Columbine! Even though other plants are way ahead of mine, I notice that Columbine seems to bloom at the ssame time here in Michigan, Germany, England, Tennessee, and California, to name a few. ~The Plant Detective :)

Hi Racn4acure......bees are just so amazing....will pop over and visit later in the evening.....

Hi Gail.....we have had a horrible day...a little sunshine but mainly heavy showers and grey skies......but I did still manage to work in the garden...although I did get wet.....

Cheryl said...

Hi Jan.....it has been such a miserable day here...the winds are so strong and they do so much damage....
Hopefully we will have a better week.....


Hi Mimi....thank you so much for your lovely comment......

Cheryl said...

Dear Cheryl,
Always a joy to see your bees. It is sunny today at my house and bees were out. Just beginning to warm up a bit this afternoon after very cool overnight. Lots of birds gathering food to feed young. I refill feeders twice a day!
Thank you for Sunday Safari!
Sherry

beautiful bees on your blooms...i love seeing all of yours...i am getting a lot and they are burrowing in the barn wood and the herb hutch.

Glad you had a sunny sunday. Your pics reflect the warmth of the season. And I like the colour pink of your flowers. The bees seem to like it too!

We are having a cold and rainy weekend. Rather disappointing, as this is traditionally our planting weekend.

Rose said...

Cheryl, your bee photos are always so lovely! They always seem to like your flowers as bonnets:) I'm beginning to see a few more here; perhaps as the temperatures warm up later in the week, they will be out in full force.

Naturegirl said...

How wonderful for you that the bees are out! Here in my world none yet..hopefully soon!
Happy weekend to you!

Cheryl, like Rose said, we have seen only a few bees here. I think it has been too cool and oh so wet. This week looks good for weather-much warmer temps and no rain for a while, so hopefully the bees will come out and play. :)

Love the bee with the charming pink hat!

Hope you have a great gardening week.

Your bee pictures always make me smile. They are so sweet...and the bees always look so fuzzy and fat gorging themselves...getting their fill of pollen, with their heads stuck in the flowers like Pooh with his head stuck in the honey jar.

I am always amazed at all of the bees that are present in your garden. The first picture makes that bee look like he is trying on a hat that is too big for him.

We are finding more buzzing bees and season warms...some have visited the inside of our house with the doors open. Our bug safaris are getting more interesting now.
