The bumble bees love the Great St. Johnswort flowers! I found them busy as bees in the flowers on the last Sunday morning in June. The weather was cool and breezy. It was a beautiful morning to be outside at sunrise.
On Monday, rain filled the day. The air was still on Tuesday morning. It was even cooler at 50 degrees. Fog lingered over the ponds and the low lying areas. A few bees gathered pollen from the flowers.
Yesterday, the rains returned with strong winds, hail, and noisy thunder. This is summer here: a roller coaster ride of heat and coolness, wind and stillness, and rain and brilliant sunshine.
