Yellow-Faced Bumble Bee on Indigo Spires Salvia
And here is a Yellow-Faced Bumble Bee, bombus vosnesenskii enjoying the nectar of the Indigo Spires Salvia blossoms.
This plant has grown at least twice in height and width since we transplanted it a year ago in the front yard. It is always in bloom, which is very fortunate for the bees and Anna's hummingbirds.
These bees emerge early in the season and seem to disappear in the late summer, but the honeybees are in the garden throughout the year, along with the hoverflies.
