Busy Bees


My Mexican sunflowers (titonias) have been the stars of the autumn garden, blooming generously and providing plenty of golden food for the pollinators. The bumble bees have been particularly drawn to them. I swear they’ve taken up residence! On rainy days, I find them taking shelter under the petals, and now that the mornings are getting colder, I find them asleep in the centers of the blossoms.
