Bumblebees in the dahlias

They don't sting - they're very slow and bumbly. If I want the flowers, I gently nudge them onto another one, although I try to leave enough flowers so they can each have their own! They seem to nestle down and stay in one flower all night and in high winds and bad weather. These are all different bees - I have at least 5!

Sharing! (There were other flowers)

Fall? Not Fall? Who Knows?

I cut my rosebuds and dahlias, since it was threatening frost.
Now my air-conditioner is on. Oh well.
