Bees, Please   Leave a comment

I ran across this yellow-flowering bush on the western edge of the property a couple of days ago.  I could tell it’s likely a member of the sunflower family, but haven’t yet identified it.

Whatever it is, it’s certainly free-flowering; an explosion of yellow.  The local bees were ecstatic.  There’s only a couple in this shot, but there were dozens buzzing around happily.  There’ve been so many news stories about the mass die-offs of honeybees, and the possible consequences to our food supply, that it’s nice to see the little critters healthy and active.
