My garden boss and I are taking a break today. We did drive out with our little trailer and picked up another load of bark to do the rest of the beds.
We get a lot of bumble bees in our yard and I was able to take some close-ups of them.I thought you might enjoy seeing them at work. Especially those who don’t have many. We love the little critters. They are non-aggressive and amusing to watch.
Given the wing area to weight ratio, an aeronautics engineer would tell you that bumble bees can’t possibly fly. I guess that makes them another of natures miracles. That’s another reason why I like them. I hoped you like them too.
