I was more than a little lucky to capture this bee on the wing. The beauty of digital photograpy, no worries about wasted film. Pity about the big woolly ram in the background.
The herb garden in autumn tends to be a little messy. There are seed heads to remove, the ever present weeds to deal with and straggly woody growth to prune back. That is what I have been doing for fun the past few days, tidying up the herbs before winter. I am feeling tired though and my work has been in fits and starts but hopefully I will conquer my weariness soon and have enough energy to do what I have to and then some.
