A late summer afternoon

It's still hot in the afternoons, but the mornings are cooling off. It's starting to feel like a hint of fall is on the way.

In late summer, carpenter bees and a variety of bumble bees are active visiting flowers.

Carpenter bees enjoy late flowering Rudbeckia fulgida and passionvine, Passiflora incarnata.


  1. You have one of the most beautiful backyards I've ever seen - it always looks like such a nice place to take a stroll!

  2. That's so kind of you to say--it's especially nice in the afternoon.


Please share your thoughts. I enjoy hearing from fellow nature observers, as well as whomever else drops by.
