Comfrey in bloom

I just loved the spiraling floresence of these comfrey flowers… every day they are a-buzz with bees, mostly bumblebees, but honeybees as well. It reminds me how important flowers are in and around the garden. They provide nectar for the bees in between the times when those things we want pollinated, such as summer squash, aren’t flowering yet. I notice some colors attract hummingbirds more than others, such as red and yellow, but the bees like ’em all.
I’m also learning to use my camera better too!
