Bees and a couple of late bloomers

We have had a week of humidity and hot temperatures and frankly the garden looks tired.  Blossoms have wilted, foliage is dying off, the mums and asters and glorious fall stuff hasn’t popped yet.. so its kind of the ugly season in most of the garden.   The bees don’t think so though.  They are all over the few blossoms that are still around.

And Greywoods Papa Joe is happy in its new spot.  It didn’t bloom last year so I moved it.  Voila!

Just enough still happening in the garden so that I will be happy to get to the weeding on Wednesday when the weather cools off a bit.
