Bee on the broccoli blossoms

I'm ever more glad we let the broccoli bloom. While we've since cut it down to make room for the summer garden, in the end, it was swarming with happy bees like this one, weighed down with fat saddlebags of pollen.

Caught this lucky shot with a point and shoot and patience.

Broccoli blossoms

The broccoli side shoots got away from us a little bit this week and are starting to bloom. We have a big bag in the fridge as it is, and I think the flowers are pretty.
