Swamp sunflower (Helianthus angustifolius)
: : :
Usually these sunflowers bloom later in the summer, but I have a few that have popped up early this year.
With temperatures hovering near 100*F every day, I think they think it is August!
The Flower Fly is happily sunning himself, too. He's actually a teensy tiny bee with
yellow and black stripes.
We call them sweat bees around these parts because they like to sting you when you're
working out in the garden and sweating.
If you're not sweating, they don't sting you.
Needless to say, I don't get stung.
What's in your flower garden right now?
