The garden was buzzing with activity today! Bees in all their glory savoring the sweet nectar of our butterfly bush, roses and basil…the large bees are such a pleasure to watch and listen to…they adore the butterfly bush…as many as three bees can be spotted on just one bloom…I must have experienced the music of hundreds as they flew from blossom to blossom…pure delight…the smaller bees prefer the basil…imagine how their honey would taste? African basil honey! Must be amazing!
The fall solstice is only a few days away but today’s afternoon sun still felt like summer…warm and satisfying…flowers still fragrant and lush…how magnificent and fleeting summer is…may you soak in the last of its warmth and beauty…wishing you a very happy weekend!

I just love the curvaceous shadows it casts on our stone wall…
Gary’s pepper plant…aubergine at its best!
