As I approached the bush, it was covered with bees. This is a very a happy site, since not too long ago there were articles written on the disappearance of the honey bees. I remember not seeing that many a couple of summers ago, but today...well, I had to very gently clip some stems, while trying not to upset
this little guy, or....
this site for sore eyes. As I was cutting away, all I could hear was humming. I really thought that if I kept cutting, one of them was going to get mad at me and bite, so I clipped the amount shown in the first picture, and high tailed it out of there! I'll enjoy the bushes from the patio, and leave the cute little honey , and bumble bees to do their work.
I also noticed a ton of flowers on the pomegranate tree. Last season, there were very few blooms. I guess we are in for a treat in the fall!
The weather in our area has been quite nice, unlike many parts of the US at the moment. I hope all of you in the hot regions are staying cool.
I'm off to sew nine buttonholes on the linen dress, that seems to have taken me entirely too long to finish. Next up on the cutting table are some more simpler pieces. Stay tuned for photos of the pretty blush pick dress!!
