I know I’m not the only backyard gardener who feels compelled to survey the garden each morning to make sure all is in order. Is anything being attacked? Any herbs bolting? Any signs of blight on tomatoes or basil? Should I be picking something before it gets overgrown? Does anything need water?
Sometimes we’re delighted by what we find. This morning I found two bees sleeping in a blossom on my flying saucer squash plant. Despite the cat’s meows they remained fast asleep so I had time to go in and grab the camera. You can even see the pollen on their bodies!
