In preparation for the upcoming season of programs that I give, which are centered around designing gardens to support pollinators, one of my jobs is to refresh and update the photos that are an integral part of the presentation. This past month I have been immersed in colorful images and tomorrow I am giving my new monarch butterfly presentation at (the other) Cape. Here are some of the outtakes from my pollinator habitat programs for our winter weary eyes.

MUST SEE! ~a timely, informative talk accompanied by stunning photos!
That’s one dead tired bee Eloise.
It’s day two and the Bean’s pet bee is still dead sleeping. That’s one sleepy Bee Elliebean.
The lengths I go to to provide content for my faithful blog readers. These little buzzing piranhas where swarming all around me while trying to get these up close and personal bee pollinating pics.
The Mrs caught a bee on the porch and put it in a container for the Bean. Well wouldn’t you know that bee died fell asleep. He’s been taking a long nap and The Bean has been carrying him around everywhere talking to him. I guess the folks at the Post Office think she’s a little strange, lol.
