Blue thimble plant is still blooming


Although much of it is drying up, as are most of our native annuals in the garden, one of the blue thimble plants gilia capitata, is still producing blossoms.

Here is a honey bee climbing up on a blossom.

And here is the same bee on top of the same blossom, its wings shining in the afternoon sun.
