We’ve had a string of warm days and I had a few minutes to wander in my garden and the asters were buzzing with activity!  It’s almost like they can sense the cold is coming…I was encouraged to see a variety of pollinators from skippers to bees and a fly that mimics a bee.  Enjoy!

There was also a carpenter bee stealing nectar from a salvia flower, which bypasses the stamens and prevents pollination…poor flower.
