A small garden in the English style, set in the wilds of the northern Sonora Desert...
Todas bellas :))
¡Muchas gracias, Susana! Buenas noches :)
The bees are certainly filling up their pollen sacks on the Ericameria.
I kept trying to photograph just how full they were ;-) These are about the best I got... The pollen is fairly bright, but what was really bright was the so-called Desert Poppy (Kallstroemia grandiflora) pollen back in September. All the pollen sacks were deep saffron orange!
I love the sunrise photo and the way the light dances around the garden. 7 out of the last 9 months in the world this year have broken world heat records (and by significant margins). I do hope these heat waves ease off for you - here on the other side of the pacific, we are just starting ours :-(
Afraid I somehow got your comment to Kris here, Matt! But I'll take the commiseration all the same as our temps are heading back up... Hope your summer offers a bit of relief after all; I'm certainly ready for autumn!
That looks like one happy bee!
They seemed very contented, Kris, and very business-like - none of the rushing around I had to deal with earlier on the Desert Poppies!
