It’s been a cold and rainy spring in the Great Northwest and I’ve been worried about the bees.
Until yesterday when I found them in great numbers on the Photinia, a shrub I’ve totally neglected.
Not that it needed me to thrive.
It thrived without my notice. Or attention. Or appreciation.
An ordinary garden shrub I thought, good only as filler in the background.
Until I saw the blossoms and smelled their fragrance.
The bees know and love it.
Bees which till now, seem to have been in short supply.
So thanks to the Photinia. I still may neglect you. But I will always appreciate you. 🙂
