Bee Balm

A bumble bee comes in for an intoxicated landing on yet another newly-opened bee balm blossom.

The flowers were literally humming with bees, and apparently the flower really is a balm to them as they weren’t at all interested in me. It’s good to have plants like this in your garden, both to attract the pollinators and to feed them—bee colonies have been struggling for many reasons in the past few years.
