Project Green, Garden helpers

I wish I could have zoomed in closer on this bottle brush because up close it really looked spectacular. I am so happy to report that from about 6 feet away, I could hear the buzzing of bees. I expected to see bumble bees since honey bees are very scarce these days but it wasn't. Yes we have honey bees again. Yea. There must have been several hundred on just this one bush. Welcome back bees.




Here is a little closer shot but I don't think you can see the bees.



I love frogs. This green frog watches over our ivy vine and keeps other critters out of the garden.





Have a wonderful green day,
Greg

I zoomed in and saw one bee. The bottom left red flower had one dug in there!

And this year, we have WAY more bumble bees (wood borers) than I have ever seen. I think they are beginning to bore into peoples decks. The subdivision is now about 3 years old and I think the bees are able to build under decks now or something! They scare the crap out of me cause we sit on the back deck and the dive bomb our heads, but have never actually touched us, yet!

I have a question. I have a Peony that was transplanted from someone else's yard about two years ago. Last year and this year it gets pretty big, has big round buds on it, but they don't open. What could be causing that and what do I do to fix it?

We have loads of bees here, way more than last year. I like your frog, very cute!

It really does look like a bottle brush! Can you find them in local nurseries here in SC? Love it. IS it full sun? OK, guess you can tell, I am here on the blog for the evening and just catching up a bit. Have a great week!
