Summer And The God Of Honeybees

Summer has produced an abundance of flowers in our garden and I am finally coming to grips with all the weeds that have also been flourishing thanks to earlier rains. Here are just a few of the blooms that we have enjoyed over the past couple of months.

The only place you will find appropriately grouped colors is in these pictures. The garden itself is a jumble of colors, some of which complement each other and others that clash with little regard for text-book color palettes.

The place has been alive with bugs of all kinds, from the most unwelcome such as Japanese beetles to some of our favorites like brilliant dragonflies, butterflies and bees. Naturally, the minute I walk out there with the camera they all take off but I did manage to capture a few shots.

Which leads me very nicely to a topic close to my heart. My eldest grandson is currently promoting his podcast ” God of Honeybees ” the content of which I find thought-provoking and insightful. I do hope that you will be able to find time to visit his website as I’m sure you’ll find it interesting and well-worth delving into. I’ve written about this young man on several occasions and cannot say enough about his sincerity and kindness of heart. His thoughts on meditation, spirituality and consciousness come as welcome words particularly in this time of uncertainty and violence.

    • I’m glad these pics brought a little sunshine, Liz. We’ll be getting our share of snow in a few months. Why does the good part of the year always seem to fly by so much quicker than the winter?

    • Thanks, Indira! Gardens have always held fond memories for me, even though for many years we lived in apartments. Right from a toddler roaming around my great-aunt’s garden to visiting my grandfather’s garden in Kent, then later when we moved to our own house, playing in a huge garden filled with roses, fruit trees and vegetables of all sorts and then finally moving to the US where I have gained much pleasure from growing flowers and vegetables in my own gardens.
