Another Winged Neighbor
I couldn't forget the bees in this series of winged neighbors. This is a Common Eastern Bumble Bee, Bombus impatiens ( don't you love that name! It seems so perfect.) They love the Baptisia australis or Blue False Indigo. I have a yellow variety as well but they don't like it as much. Of course, the Catmint is also very enticing to the bees. As the Baptisia is starting to fade, I thought I would feature this fuzzy little friend. Yesterday was a picture perfect day. Hoping for a bit of rain this afternoon. We could sure use it.
