My nose knows there is pollen in the air. And what good is pollen without some pollinators? While the wind doth blow, and sprinkle pollen not only on the business end of flowers but everywhere else as well, sometimes it needs a little help. I am always pleased to see bees going about their business, doing their part.
Every day I check the lavender bush near my front porch for buzzing insects. The bees are always there, busy as, well, you guessed it. Sometimes there is only one, but often there are several. They stand out nicely with their yellow trim against the pale violet flowers.
According to EarthSky, bees don’t see the same colors that we do. Colors look different to them, and they can see ultraviolet light as well. It helps them to find nectar in a flower. Just thought you should know!
