So I came home and worked out in the yard, we'd gotten more than 3 inches of rain Wednesday and the weeds have been growing like, well, weeds. While I was doing that Mac took some pictures for me of all the critters that are visiting our bee trees. I can't get too near them as I had an allergic reaction to a wasp sting and have to carry an Epi pen when I'm outside.
So first is a view of the trees, they're really outdoing themselves this year. They're one plant that has really enjoyed all the rain.
Second is a close up and it shows one of the butterflies visiting the tree and I think Mac told me, 'cause Lord knows I'd have no idea, that it is a Buckeye Butterfly (I wrote that it was a Hairstreak and Mac told me to get it straight).
The fourth is a honey bee. When we first moved here there were few honey bees, now the garden is full of them. He's a little out of focus, but that's because he's working hard. Below him is a Bumble Bee.
The fifth picture is me weeding. Back view only, no nose shots. I'm trying to clean out the spider plant bed so they can keep spreading. I like plants that can take over a bed.
