Water for the Bees

This may look nasty but the bees love it - the water gets just dirty enough to suit them. Rock and stick for sitting and sipping.

And on the pretty side, some flowers blooming in my yard right now.

Gardenias - the smell is overwhelming. My Aunt Rena rooted two plants for me several years ago.

Hydrangea - I have rooted several bushes from this plant by putting a brick on a limb. By the next year, it's rooted and ready to be moved.

Bee Balm - the bees love this and I keep splitting and moving so I'll get more and more plants.

And Roxy - resting. It's a hard life at my house.
