Spent some time meandering in the garden today. I didn't plant a ton of flowers and my Mexican Sunflower came up from last year. Still, they are putting on quite an end of summer show, and I never tire of soaking it up.
Sunflowers so camouflage my bee girls, but if you look, you can spy her packing her saddle bags with pollen. From six feet away, I could see them hauling pollen into the hive by the buckets. I am always amazed how those tiny critters carry such a load.
