The peony poppies that are EVERYwhere around the house are a favorite of the bees!

It's been very gray around here recently so I'm enjoying this burst of color all the more. Beautiful photos.

Hello Betty!
It is so nice, to see on your blog flowers. Here it's so cold. The trees and flowers all have ice on it. Your photos send to me a feeling of sunshine :-)
Many greetings Andrea

Oh my gosh that one peony has a whole colony of bees inside it. I have never seen so many on/in one flower. Wonderful. And I also love the bachelor buttons in the first photo.. long-time favorite because when I was a little girl, my dad let me pick bouquets of them anytime I wanted to. (most of the garden was off limits)

Frühling ist eine herrliche Zeit und die Bienchen sind fleißig bei der Arbeit, darauf werden wir hier noch einige Zeit warten müssen!
Die Vogelaufnahmen sind toll, besonders die mit dem Greifvogel!
LG Heidi
