A single-flowered shrub rose and bumblebees

A rather bright pink rose anchors the end of the bed in front of the former antique shed. We’re planning to move it to another spot, along with the hydrangeas that are also in that bed, as we want to focus more on herbaceous perennials (pollinator-supporting) there.

I added Rudbeckia and Liatris in early June, after cleaning the bed up (it was FULL of weedy grasses). They’re in flower now, looking charming, but the whole bed is now an odd mixture of shapes and textures!

But I’ve been glad to see that the single flowers of this rose are activitely visited by bumblebees collecting pollen.
