Bee Happy

I can tell that I'm enjoying my new camera, I want to take pictures of everything! This is my Goat's Rue, or Mother love, it is spectacular this year. I have a 10 x 6 foot area that is filled with Goat's rue, It was used to produce better lactation in goats, cows and pigs. The animals were fed a dried potion of this herb , the actual live plant is toxic, it caused bigger breast and better milk production, thus the Mother love nickname, it derives from the nursing connection.

On this day I was annoyed by a low hummmmmmmm.....some distant chainsaw, I'm sure.


Soon a big 'ole late spring bumble bee came into focus,



he raided my pink flowers pretty aggressively,




and after this one in a million shot, I decided to leave him bee, ha! Buzz on over to How Sweet The Sound for more pinks.

Happy Pink Saturday.
The little fellow looks completely content. Rather lazy full of nectar.
I've never heard of this plant. It's rather pretty.

Lots of pink indeed. Love the shots. I remember your goat's rue post last year and only recently came upon it in a perennial book I picked up. It is pretty neat!

Hi Dawn, I saw the word 'bee' and had to come. I'm glad I did and learned something new. Lovely pink blooms of Mother love and the connection with lactation--that's so interesting! No wonder the bee was so happy there!

One day of the week I can count on for self-indulgence, Beverly's Pink Saturday. My l♥ve for the color is fed over and over and over by the generosity of everyone who participates. This week is no exception.

Thank you for sharing such great eye-candy. It was an absolute pleasure to visit your blog. Hoping this weekend finds you surrounded by l♥ve and happiness.

Great pictures! I posted a little bee on my blog today too! They were a buzzing like crazy. Happy Pink Day and have a loveleigh weekend!

Jillian said...

Your photos are all the "buzz!" Ha ha. I couldn't help but continue the pun.

Debbie said...

Wow Dawn!! That camera is a keeper! I wish mine took that good of a closeup. I am pretty sure with mine it is user error though. Talk to you soon...nice job on the vine and the buzzy bee!
