I was out in the garden yesterday, mesmerized by the bees buzzing through the lavender. We have a bunch of plants in our front yard, and every year they get bigger and fuller, and always there are more bees.
I’m hoping our little corner of the world is helping to combat colony collapse disorder. The bees seem to be alive and well in our garden! If only I had a hive, I could get some amazing lavender honey…
Each plant has about 10 – 12 bees flying around in it whenever I check. I particularly like to watch them around sunset, when the light is beautiful and the bees are plentiful.
The bees are just amazing to me. That they can sit on a flower like that, and eventually honey appears… it’s miraculous.
And even the lavender itself is a wonder. So many tiny blossoms, and so fragrant.
I hope you’re having a lovely, lavender day!
