Bees and the Ladybells


Bees and the Ladybells (Adenophora liliifolia)

The hard drumming of wings against the petal thrumming in this patch of ladybells rings as I lean in close. Just large enough a flower to get in for this one, but just long enough it requires a beating of the wings to reach the bottom. Whatever is there must be a real treat as it works bloom to bloom, always remembering which has been already visited.

So do I, and I can see one in a flower I think. Beautiful colour, deep lilac.

Thank you Marguerite. Many of our native flowers are shades of blue so it has to be placed carefully. But I love them.
