For some reason, the bumble bees seem more determined to visit the poppies when they closed up in the evening. More of a challenge. Once inside they buzz as if they stuck, only to reappear in no time.
This bumble buzzed me after a while, so I backed off. It was just posturing rather than being agressive. Soon went back to the poppy.
I love watching them. Regular readers please forgive me for yet another photo of a poppy. I can’t resist. They don’t last long and I am enjoying them.
First poppy flower opened yesterday in our garden. A dance of joy. Everyone dragged out to admire.
First petal fell today. Oh. Too soon….
There is always a silver lining. Just a question of looking.
Like the arrival of a poppy flower fairy. Must be the first of the year.
