I just love the fuzzy little buzzers. I think this may be a carpenter bumble bee. I find it difficult to get good information with pictures to ID them.
The green ones that glitter are sweat bees, don't know why they are called that. Too pretty for a name like that.
This is a Honey Bee, this is the one who we like to keep to make honey for us. This is an endangered species, or soon will be. Glad to see them busy.
The following two are Tri coloured Bumble Bees.
Wasps do the same job in many ways, but they are not as friendly. They can be bitchy.
hips and haws a sign of Autumn for sure. Hips are oval and the haws are round.
Well this was a dud of a post but I wanted to use my bee pictures.
How about I throw in some seed pods LOL.... Tickle weed and lambs tails (grasses) no idea what the real name is. I am going to have to get some nature books for next year. When I was in England I knew all the wildflowers and grasses but not here in Michigan. I am on a mission though and Tristen is going to know the woods as he grows, and know what grows there.
I liked how the light shone on this grass, and again I don't know what it is but I will learn
These stick to you as you walk through the long grasses, a smaller version is heck on a dogs coat.
Queen Annes Lace
well, thats it for now, not a normal post for this blog but I wanted to use my photo's so for now its going to be fine. Maybe later I will change it over to the Garden Blog but for now......here it be.
This part of my blog is all about the things I collect or the things I make myself. I love so many things, I paint and draw and want to learn oils and pastels. I knit and crochet but want to learn tatting. I embroider and can turn my hand to most things given a chance. So much still to learn and do. I live in hope of some day reading all my books, learning all I want to learn and now I am learning to blog. You will often find my original poems, poor as they are I offer them here. I also appreciate other people art and will feature things I find that I have enjoyed. That includes pictures of fairies and fantasy or maybe just anything beautiful.
I try to use my own photo's as much as possible, sometimes I borrow from the web. If I inadvertently use your picture without giving credit, please do let me know and I will either credit or remove it, I hope you will do the same with mine.
If you wish to leave comments on my blog you can do that by joining google if you do not have a blog yourself, please comment if you can I appreciate that.
