BUZZ – BUZZ – BUSY AS A BEE

bees on Autumn Sedum, Delaware OH 43015

These three bees were just some of the dozens that were on my sedum plants this weekend. Whenever these big Autumn Sedums reach this stage in bloom in the early fall, the blossoms are always covered with dozens of worker bees collecting the nectar for their winter hives. As I was weeding the area around the plants, the bees would fly up and around, seemingly upset that they’re bothered at being disturbed in their work, but they don’t seem intent on stinging. So both of us proceeded with our fall work because time is running out.
