Busy flower visitors on swamp milkweed
There's been such a tremendous diversity of insects visiting flowers in the country gardens we've visited here in Minneapolis so far during the Garden Bloggers Fling. It's really remarkable compared to what I've been seeing in my urban garden in WNC.
A fellow pollinator enthusiast noticed this too. Maybe we live in the equivalent of pollinator deserts.
Finally, I've seen a monarch this season!
And there were bumblebees everywhere, of all sizes, not to mention the flower flies, butterflies, etc.
