Sunflower season is upon us and bunches and bunches of these gorgeous flowers are waiting to be scooped up from the Farm Stands and Flower shops.
Such a cheery yellow flower...
so simple and when massed together they make a bold bouquet.
The bees are attracted to these beautiful big blooms.
Look at all the pollen that this worker bee has on its wings and body!
Another bee gathering pollen...looks like the pollen is dropping off the wings
I managed to capture another worker bee in flight...
with so many bees on the sunflowers you could hear them buzzing.
Bees seem to be plentiful here in The Humble Bungalow Garden and for that I am grateful as we have been enjoying the first taste of our tomato crop.
The greenhouse is proving to be quite valuable...
we had our first cucumber last weekend and the flavour was so sweet.
Heirloom tomato "Salad" variety served on top of butter lettuce leaves.
Sprinkled with a bit of salt and pepper with a light drizzle of dressing...
I was busy running errands and it was noon before I knew it
so I took myself out for a quick bite
a curried vegetable wrap and a side of salad
sitting at an outdoor table in the sunshine
with the sounds of the birds and the scent of the sea...
a lovely summer holiday moment
and I did not need to travel far...
Hope you are having a fabulous week.
