This plant has been at the bottom of the garden, spreading its ugly leaves wider and wider, and Karen and I were slowly appreciating it less and less. Then, suddenly, flower buds appeared – dozens of them. And we like it now.
It was the orange sacs on the legs that really drew my attention here. The bee is currently busy on a Aquilegia.
The bees were working in the lavender with dedication, and wouldn’t stay still long enough for an obscenely close close-up.
