Roses are red, violets are …. yellow?
Laurie is allergic to strawberries, but our property is covered with them
Our orchard trees were very prolific this year. This crab apple didn’t have much room left for any more blossom.
The eating apples were also the most prolific than they have ever been.
There were not as many pollinators as usual. Although the trees were buzzing in the mid-morning and I counted about 5 species of bees, by the time I got to taking pictures, there was just one bumble bee that wouldn’t stay still for long enough (a second or two) and this red admiral.
There were only a few hover flies as well, though this one seemed to find plenty to eat on the pussytoes that are taking over a few sections of lawn.
