bees & flowers

As busy as a bee ... these amazing little creatures pollinate the largest percentage of the plants that supply us with food. And, yet ... we poison them with blanket pesticides.
Five years ago, this Western Trillium was rescued from a woodland area that was to be clear cut. It blooms proudly each year. Daffodils ... one flower the deer don't eat!
Delicate ... brightening our day.
Pristine. The star magnolia bush is home to our humming birds.

Ah, we have an entire patch of Trilliums now at my mom's house. We dug up a few when we heard that the woods near my house was going to be bulldozed to make way for a development. At least the Trilliums were saved! Now whenever I go home for a visit, I always check on them to see how they are doing.

Lovely photos!
