Lavender Bees

This is actually an established plant near the house, not the new bed. But someday :-).



Our honey bees (this is not a honey bee, but all bees are important) have been quiet.



Our yard full of white clover is brown.



We got some rain last week and things perked up for a couple days. A couple days.



I have the new lavender garden all tucked in. Everyone is doing fine so far. Looking forward to next year. Wait. Just looking forward to fall and winter. It will be awhile before I'm ready (if ever) for next summer.

This summer is the pits! I yearn for fall.

I want to plant some lavender next year for my bees. I hope yours continues to go well.

Summer is my least favorite season of the year. I think many of us who have to work in the heat with our animals or crops agree. It's just miserable. When I was a kid, living in a city suburb, summer was all about going to the beach and swimming. Not so anymore. Yech. And, I have serious photo envy going on with your bee pictures. How ever did you capture them so well? I can't get close enough and then the buggers never stay still! I have some lavender that I cut way back to stumps this spring... and they never came back. Do you think a mulch of straw would help or did I kill them?

Beautiful capture of those bees! Maybe the lavender provides stress release for them has it does for people :-)
