The late summer summer sun lingers on the edge of the Appalachian forest. Noticing the bright yellow flowers that seem to thrive everywhere in my area I stepped closer. The flowers are called Wingstems. I have not been able any references that list them as being edible or medicinal. They mainly seem to be food for the bees. And the bees seem to agree with that.
I have been somewhat concerned about the lack of honeybees in my yard this year but the bumblebees seem to be rising to challenge of pollinating everything. I’ve seen more bumblebees than ever before this year. The whole wildflower plot around my home is teeming with them. I followed the one in tonight’s feature image for several minutes and she’s a very busy bee indeed.
Chance favored me as she went about her work and allowed me to freeze time for you. I love it when I can stop the wings and make the bee defy gravity. It’s said that when you experience a perfect moment that time stands still. If that’s true then perhaps we can make summer last forever.
