Sitting out on the patio feels a little crowded these days. The bees are busy and noisy!
They're enjoying this purple salvia. They have been all summer, but right now they're almost frantic with activity. And the few that have buzzed around this season have called their friends! There's nearly a SWARM out there, buzzing in and out of those purple spikes.
Do they know that their time is running out? They're filling every sunshiney minute with hectic activity, because their time is almost up! They'll need to hibernate soon, and a long, dark, sleepy winter is ahead for them.
That doesn't sound so bad, does it?
