Down in the corner of our garden, by the birdbath and the wall where I put the bird seed, I've got two Savannah holly bushes. I planted them when I moved in and haven't touched them since. They're about 12 - 15 ft tall now and at this time of year, they are covered in tiny little blossoms.
When I went down to sprinkle bird seed on the wall this morning, the first thing I noticed was a happy buzzing sound that took me right back to my childhood. I turned to look, and the Savannah hollies were alive with busy bees.
Naturally, I grabbed the camera and took photos. Most of them ending up being not very inspiring photos of a bee's back end with the rest of it hidden behind a leaf, but I did get a couple of decent shots to show you.
And, upon looking around the garden, I found that my little bluebonnets were popular with the bees this morning too.
Never let it be said that we aren't doing our part for pollinators :-)
Have a great week, everyone.
