While we’re all thinking good thoughts for Margene today, here’s a little diversion.
I planted a Caryopteris x clandonensis (“Blue Mist”, “Bluebeard”, “Blue Spirea”) early this year, because I knew it would be a bumblebee magnet. Now that it’s in full bloom, that’s proving true. It’s also attracting lots of other bees, large and small.
As the mornings get cooler, I’ll be sneaking out early to see if I can find some bumblebees sleeping on it.
