Many butterflies and bees still around


Now that it's October and it isn't peak blooming season for most plants, it's nice to see that we still have a lot of butterfly and bee visitors.

There are still many umber skippers fluttering around the garden, sometimes in groups of five.

It's funny how they often land right in front of me.

I sometimes wonder if they just are curious.

I do try to have a variety of native plants in the garden that will produce blooms and nectar for bees throughout the year.

And what a relief it is to see the borage plants still doing well and blooming.

Normally their peak bloom period here seems to be late spring through late summer.

I purchased a couple of borage plants during the summer.

As you can see they are still providing nourishment for the bees.
