Up and Away
Judy took this series of photos of bees on the Tithonia. Here are three I particularly like.
One thing about this picture is that it shows very clearly what a composite flower is. What looks like one flower is really a bundle of flowers – you can even see the tiny pistils in each.
So today I arrived in Portland, Oregon, to attend the Garden Bloggers’ Fling. Looks like the organizers have done an outstanding job with the itinerary they’ve put together, which includes public gardens as well as some private gardens I’ve wanted to see in person for a long time. I may post a picture or two but I don’t think I’ll be doing any full posts until next week. I’m going to try to hoard my photos until there isn’t much happening in the garden.
Unfortunately, Judy doesn’t arrive until Friday night so I will have to take all the pictures until then, so there will be a temporary decline in the quality of photographs.
Enjoy your weekend!
