My flowers had a narrow escape this morning when the temperature dipped to 32°. Frost adhered itself to the windshields but, thankfully, not the flowers. The bees, honey- and bumble- and wild, must know that the time for pollen gathering is running out. The flower beds are teeming with the little winged workers today. There are so many bees out there that many blossoms have two to three bees on each one.
We humans have also been hard at work trying to complete our list of jobs and projects before the days get cold, short, and snowy. The onset of wintertime is a great motivator for people and bees alike!
