I was outside in the garden the other day and noticed my fall sedum was not only blooming, but covered with bees.
Honey bees in my yard are always a delight to me since they are becoming more and more scarce.
Some years ago, I used to be a beekeeper and always enjoyed their presence in my yard. Now it is a very cherished treat.
The sedum is so delicate and such a sweet shade of pink .
Such soft shades of pink are sheer delight, making me wish it were spring instead of fall.
I found it inspiring to see the bumble bees and several varieties of honey bees all sharing the same flowers without any bickering. Their friendliness shows they know that nectar gathering time is drawing to a close and suitable flowers are few and far between. It reminded me how important it is to share what we have with others, even if it isn't much.
Wishing you all a lovely weekend and reminding us all to
