I couldn't help but share a picture of our pumpkin bees. The colors are amazing and luckily they are friendly bees that do not mind having their picture taken.
I have a giant pumpkin plant growing in the flower bed outside our front door and the bees are CRAZY over the flowers. I contemplate pulling the pumpkin out as it is over-running eveything. But watching these critters is like watching goldfish! It is addictive.
Each flower only lasts one day. They open in the morning and the bees sit inside non-stop until late afternoon, when the flower closes up and dies off. They will fight for space inside the flowers until they lose their little legs. They must be some of the tastiest flowers around!!
