It’s a busy time of year out there for pollinators. This bumble bee was working the comfrey that’s growing wild near our woodshed.

I went on a bug hunt yesterday morning and came across this crab spider lurking in a mallow blossom below our patio garden. She was waiting to ambush the the right sized pollinator…

Timothy grass is an abundant perennial grass in our region (and many others!) It’s pipe cleaner-like heads burst with tiny flowers as it blooms.
