Posts Tagged ‘Eupatorium’

Hi everyone! It’s Millie & Walter here. Thursday we enjoyed our first snow of the season. That is a few weeks later than our average but we aren’t complaining.

We enjoy watching all the critters in our yard.

To warm things up we wanted to show you some of the last bees that were hanging out in our yard a few weeks ago.

Honey bees on the hydrangea

There were just a few hydrangea that the honey bees could enjoy so they were working hard for what might have been their last supper of the season.

The perennial geranium was also still blooming.

The honey bees were also enjoying the geranium that was still in bloom.

We’ve learned to stay away from all those stinging insects.

The bumble bees were lapping up all the nectar they could find from the eupatorium.

Bumble Bees were all over the eupatorium

This is bumble bee heaven.

Here is a little video of the bumble bees in action on the eupatorium.

If you can’t see the video you can go here to see it.

I’m dreaming of the last of the warm fall days.

By now the perennials have all been cut down and the bees are all hibernating (or whatever bees do during the cold weather). We’re watching the snow falling outside and hoping that it accumulates enough to enjoy our first snow zoomies of the year.

We hope you enjoyed seeing some of the bees enjoying the last flowers in our yard.

Hi everyone! It’s Walter here.

Let’s check out the flowers and fall colors

As you can see I’m doing quite well and I have all of my Blogville friends to thank for helping me recover so quickly. We don’t have any test results back yet but I feel good as new and I’m told my breath is super fresh now. Enough of that, let’s get to the flowers in our yard.

Some of our Stella D’Oro have started blooming again

The Turtlehead flower is one of the latest bloomers we have in our yard

The insects appreciate having a late flowering perennial in the garden

Lastly let’s see how some of the shrubs have changed so far.

The spirea leaves are starting to turn red

The Callicarpa berries are really starting to turn their beautiful purple color

I hope you enjoyed seeing some of the flowers and fall colors we have in our yard.
