In the midst of the heat and humidity, our rhododendron is suddenly a riot of blooms and frothy color! The lilacs and their heady scent have nearly all gone past, but now the mock orange is pouring its perfume in our bedroom window. Along with that distinctive spicy, floral scent comes the constant sound of bees buzzing!
Lots of bees buzzing - everywhere!
