  1. Wow! Just splendid! I don't know if I've ever seen St.Johns Wort, I for sure wouldn't recognize it like this bee did. Maybe now I will remember what it looks like.

    1. Saw this pretty patch of wildflowers on the side of the road when we were on holiday. The bee, truth be told, was a surprise when I cropped my photo and had it up on my laptop screen :)))

    1. Thanks EC, bees move pretty fast don't they. You line a shot up and before you know it they are off onto the next flower :)

  6. I wonder if the bee gets benefit of the healing properties of the flower as well as a tasty snack. :)

    1. Hi Sallie, thank you and that is interesting. I don’t really know much about its medicinal properties.

I thank you for taking the time to leave a comment. I enjoy reading them very much and always try to return a visit. As I do monitor comments it may take a while for them to appear, even quite late depending on what is going on and how much time I am able to spend on the computer.

Also, there are times when I delete by mistake, so if something you have written to me is gone, it's usually because my fingers have pushed the wrong button!
