Bumbles and Buds.....

This morning I was greeted with music in the garden..... Busy Bumbles.

As I was doing the Bumble Bee dance trying to capture some photos I spotted
Clematis buds...
It's going to be a great day!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Today I am Thankful for the Bumbles.....they have big responsibilites in the garden.

Beautiful bumbly bees!

Noelle said...

There is just something so wonderful about seeing bumblebees busily at work in the garden :^)

Becca's Dirt said...

Bumbles have to have a spot too. I like to watch them do their work. Some great weather still on tap for you and me though rain is coming by Wed. It will be welcome to water the new stuff.

Have a great garden day Darla.

I love when the bumblebees are out, it just makes it feel like Spring. Your pictures look so warm, it's gotten cold here again.

Crystal said...

I just love seeing your photos. It give me hope that Spring is on its way to PA. Bumble bees and flowers what better way to think of Spring.

Have a blessed week.

Hi Darla, Your flowers and bees give me hope that it will be Springtime soon!!! Beautiful photes!

Together We Save said...

They do indeed but that sting can be a painful one.

Your pansies are the prettiest shade of blue.

Of course the bees are too busy to pay much attention to us, but they are good company to have while you garden.

As I looked at your pics, I imagined you doing the dance of the bumblebee, perched precariously on one foot on a stone, camera in one hand, the other out for balance, one leg in the air like a flamingo, snapping pictures, while the neighbor was videotaping your antics to send them to Americas Funniest Videos.

I've been struggling with tech issues, and fighting allergies and have fallen behind in my blog commenting. But thanks for visiting my blog.

Have a wonderful Monday!

Hocking Hills Gardener said...

It sure is loving your pansies Darla.

Oh, oh! I have two Blue birds moving into the new Blue bird house. I was so excited when I saw them checking it out I liken to broke my neck stumbling around getting to the camera and back to the window. LOL!

Susie said...

I saw my first bee this past Friday at work. I was so glad to see him.

Tom said...

Well done Darla... that is one nice Bumble Bee... I can not recall seeing one like that before..

fairegarden said...

Wow, your header yellow shot is awe-inspiring, Darla, I had a hard time getting past it to the post. But am so glad I did, imagining your bee dance made my day, as did the sound of music, bee music! :-)

Great Capture in mid air Darla.

I had to put something up as a header until Wednesday,lol.

Thought I would show some of my fans,lol.

Twisted Fencepost said...

I haven't seen any bumbles yet, but I've seen honeybees. Yay! Whoever thought I would be excited about seeing a bee? tee hee

Deb said...

love them on the flowers...just not on me...

Di said...

Darla great capture of the bumble bee. I saw my first today on the blooming Rhododendrons but it was way too fast to snap. Hope you are having a great week. Diana

Dar said...

Bless Your Week

Feels like spring to me!

Gail said...

It was a great day and bumbles make it better. I can't wait to see them. gail

Randy and Jamie said...

I can't believe you already have Bumblebees! We barely have blooms.--Randy

Lois said...

I like seeing the bumble bees, but have to keep my distance since I was stung on the head by one once and was sick as a dog for a week! Apparently I'm allergic. They are pretty though.

L. D. Burgus said...

I keep collecting people with great blogs. I don't know if I can keep up. I could use another Florida site to follow. Thanks for stopping by.

sweet bay said...

I love the shot of the Clematis bud with the violas in the background.

Kathy said...

Your action photos are wonderful!!!!
I don't know what that nasty spider is....(can you tell I don't care for spiders!)... I know they all have a job, their just creepy.

The bumblie bees are the sweetest though.

I can't belive all the warm weather fun your having, we still have a considerable amount of snow...Rain the rest of the week so maybe by the weekend it'll be gone!

Have fun outside girl,
xoxo~Kathy @ Sweet Up-North Mornings...
