Honey Bee and Borage Blossoms
What a great weekend to observe bees, birds and butterflies!
The weather was lovely with warmer temperatures and sunshine.
We love the rain, but this is a nice change, when the bees and butterflies are out and about all day. I saw in our garden many bees, a painted lady butterfly, a cabbage moth and a monarch butterfly.
Here is a honey bee approaching a borage blossom.
The borage plants have been blooming ever since last summer, which I find very surprising because I'm used to seeing them go dormant in the fall.
They have been providing bees with nectar throughout the winter, whenever temperatures were warm enough between the rainstorms.
And now more bees are enjoying the nectar from borage blossoms.
