A Different Kind of Working Bee

My lemon-scented teatree is flowering at the moment, and this year it is covered in bees.
The bees are probably very happy to find this rich source of nectar only about 10 metres from their hive. With such a short distance to fly they can probably make a lot of trips per day.

Another plant attracting the bees is the crepe myrtle:
I didn't manage to get a photo of a bee in a flower, though.


  1. is your crepe myrtle still flowering? all the local ones are long finished.

  2. These light purple ones have just started this week, and I have a darker pinkish one which hasn't started yet.
