  1. It's a good question, where are the bees? Pollinators are in crisis for sure.

    1. I have never seen so few as this year. I saw one bumble bee in the blossom this evening, but he will have to work hard to pollinate our three apple trees! Diane

  2. Beautiful post with beautiful blooms. Even your vegetables look great! The Japanese roses in my garden are attracting a lot of bees.
