For the first time in 2 years, the milkweed have managed to flower this year. (Between deer and drought they've had a rough time.)
Yesterday I saw 2 monarchs hovering around the sweetly-scented blooms and was also delighted to notice that there were bees too. (Bees of any kind have been very scarce this year. I've not even seen any of the destructive carpenter bees - yet.)
Anyway, I wish you could smell these blooms. Like honey.
While the bees and butterflies were busy, yours truly has been just as busy.
Check out the Veg Page, Garden Projects Page and the Flowers Page. (Sidebar links) Yep, I'm obviously feeling much better this year and the gardens are getting way more attention these days.
