Lovely flowers, I have these delighting my garden as well! I so understand your feelings on blogger... I just hate to be forced into things.....no matter how hard we kick, some things are just gonna happen no matter what, right.....?

Exactly, Karen.

Change is for underpants, not blogger interfaces!

Yeah, the worst part is that I tried to add someone to my blogroll, and Blooger changed my entire front page, causing me to lose my precious blogroll for a sec. Luckily, I was able to restore things.

Bees and Datura

I was expecting a recipe.

I think you just need to add some yogurt and cucumber, S.C.

Mix well.

Cute little buzzers.

They ever swarm at you?

Lovely shots!

What is the plant the bees are enjoying, thunder?

M.B., the bees usually give me no trouble. However, when I was going by to take a picture of their hive the other day, they WERE swarming all over the place, and there was some wind, too. I stayed away because if one happens to sting you, she release pheromones that alert the rest of the hive to THE DANGER.

Alexia, it is in Frank Fetch Park, so it might be something non-native. (AKA, I'm not sure ;)

Mr Hendrix would have been 71 sometime last week.

The flowers look like stonecrop sedum. I've got some in my garden, and the bumblebees and honey bees love it.

vacuumslayer said...

Only 71, AK? That doesn't seem very old. Wow.
