Bee's hangin with the Fennyl

I was roaming the backyard today, checking out my favorite spot, the Garden! I intended to some weeding and plant some lettuce and cilantro. Except, its a 100 plus out today, too hot for me to be deep in dirt pulling weeds! My Fennyl caught my eye. I noticed my Fennyl is flowering. I dont grow it to eat it, I just like the smell and how pretty it looks when it flowers. As I got closer, I noticed a couple of busy little Bees hangin out in the yellow flowers. So, I ran into the house to get my camera and snap a few photos. The pictures came out better then I thought, since it was so bright outside. I love to watch nature at work.
I love how they just go on buzzing about there day! So fun to watch!


  1. Your pictures made me realize I haven't seen those kind of bees in my garden all summer. I do however have a ton of bumblebees, or as I like to call them "Fuzzy Bees".

  2. I havent seen alot of Bees lately, thats why I took these pics. I think thats why some of my veggies were funky this year. Bad Pollantion!

  3. I haven't seen any of these bees either...that is why i want to get some. I have black bees, and some beebums. And plenty of wasps! Beautiful fennel.

  4. I have bees everywhere! You can have a couple, giggle. I Love that you took these pictures as the bees are so importnat to the garden! And I LOVE cooking with fennel! Yum!
