I found an unexpected surprise when I went shopping, the wetlands were covered in flowers. I supposed that they are there every year, but I just never noticed them before.
They were tucked into every nook and cranny behind the vines and shrubs. The bees certainly had no problem spotting them. They were everywhere - buzzing from flower to flower gathering nectar and spreading pollen.
From a distance, it really doesn't look like there are many blossoms at all. Just a few flecks of white here and there.
But when you get a bit closer, there are yellows, reds, purple and those lovely white mallows.
Wetlands dripping with blossoms at the end of the summer season - it was a wonderful unexpected surprise.
Now if I could just get my late summer garden to do that!
