oh, hello there bee…..

todaysbeeas you all know, i come home every day at lunch to let the dogs out, give cody bear his noon meds, snuggle…what not.

but i also grab one of the cameras and hope, hope, hope something interesting happens.

wellll, bee season is here.

now, i also grab the camera after the work day.  it’s been weird to see this:

noon:  bees gettin’ their buzz on in my cholla blossoms.  the cholla blossoms that are full of fluffy golden pollen.

5 pm:  i come home and find cholla blossoms with a decimated supply of pollen.  the gold dust has disappeared and the pedals are closing up.  they’ve been worked over.

like buzzybeegirl says: they don’t say busy as a bee for nothing.

Our cacti are just starting to flower here — we’re a bit behind you!
