Happy Bees

July 13, 2020

 

Now that it's in the middle of the summer, and days are hot, bees are all over the garden, sipping nectar and collecting pollen.

 

The little sweat bees seem to be particularly fond of the buckwheat blossoms.

 

Here is a sweat bee dwarfed by a Sea Cliff Buckwheat Eriogonum parvifolium flower head.

The flower heads are about an inch in circumference.
