Bees, Spiders And Roses In The Garden


I was inspired to do this post because a blogger asked where are all the bees
and butterflies. I found a lot of bees this spring and summer but I couldn't
catch a butterfly with my camera. Still trying.
These look like my 'Leonidas' rose. This was taken at The Huntington Library. Another
 missed photo from there.

Looking over the photos from The Huntington Library I found this missed photo of a
spider with some kind of a bug.




This was taken at my garden center.


Do you see the tiny ant?

This garden is fantastic-no wonder nature has flocked to it! I love the roses where the bees have nestled into.
