Bee Flowers in June – Part 1

June 3, 2013…bees on the Ceanothus (California Lilac) at Amy’s house. Everyday we walk past her house anticipating this bloom. It finally happened.
It seemed like June was really busting out all over. Everyday there were opportunities to shoot videos. It got so bad I was hoping for some rainy days so I could get some print work done.
I’ve taken some screen shots to show some of the blossoms. These are from the videos just in case you don’t have time to watch them.

June 3, 2013…Since I had my camera out, I dropped by Bob and Carol’s house. They’ve got all kinds of flowers growing instead of a lawn. Bob said I could take all the shots I wanted, so I started on this Red Thyme growing low to the ground.
June 3, 2013…While I was at Bob and Carol’s I spotted this little gem. It’s a geranium by the name, “Vision Violet.”
