I’ve been a bit of a shutter-bug today, but I’ll only bore you with a few more garden shots. Here’s a picture of the biggest bee I’ve ever seen in my life:
The picture doesn’t do him justice, but he had to be an inch and 1/2 long. He spent a good 15 minutes lumbering through the bee balm.
Here’s the latest slime mould update. It lost its yellow outer coating over the course of the day and is now a hard, fleshy mass.
I was very excited to discover that the lingonberry bushes are blooming!! I was beginning to think they weren’t going to produce anything this year because I’d just planted them this spring, but here you go: They’re actually more pink in person, but the bright sun kind of washed out the photo.
