The Bee Tree

Joan calls this her Bee Tree.

I stood there for about 5 minutes trying to take clear photos of the bees, but they flew away so I have a lot of photos of the plant, but no bee.

Here are some of those I did manage to catch.

I love these colours and the frilled petals.

Dratted bees - I have the same trouble! Those top pictures look like Eryngium 'Miss Wilmott's Ghost' - I have the same plants in my garden.

Sorry I haven't dropped in for a while. Life does get in the way sometimes. xxx

I had the same problem when I tried to get a photo of a bee! You definitely did better than me. Mine were all very blurry.

I had exactly the same problem with a butterfly yesterday and chased it all over the garden. I hope my new neighbours didn't spot me.

What a neat looking plant. Bees are hard to get-clear. And of course you like the colors of the orange flower.
If ya don't know by now I like the photos you share, thanks
