Buzzy Morning

This morning I went to check on some plantings in the back and discovered the world was buzzing all around me. I had cabbage butterflies, a monarch butterfly, bumblebee, some other types of bee and numerous flies all buzzing and flying about and on the flowers. They were enjoying the coneflowers primarily and the Culver's root. Here are some photos.

and that brown bug is still around


  1. fantastic photos Patty. We have lots of bees this year and those armadillo bugs. They are only a bit of a bother. I have made my plans for the front and shade garden, but I'm not going to start until the fall and next spring. I'll fill you in during our next talk.
