So pretty

By late July and early August, the gardens are at peak color in Minnesota.  The colorful blooms and scents emanating from these landscapes are finally drawing in a variety of bees and butterflies (to be showcased in a later post).

Sidewalk garden in Roseville, MN, in July

I love to visit my neighbor’s sidewalk garden because it is a bee-friendly one, and there is always something interesting going on there.

The prairie garden at the local library is buzzing with insects as a great diversity of wildflowers come into bloom.

The wildflower garden in my backyard is buzzing as well, with some spring flowers still blooming while the mid-summer flowers get going.

the flowers draw more than just the bees and butterflies these days…my youngest granddaughter enjoys the fragrance.

I’m a little busy with little people these days, so the next few posts will be short.
