The bees are back in town!

I hadn’t seen any bees in our garden for a while, and I was starting to get worried! Bees pollinate lots of fruits and vegetables, and without them, many plants couldn’t grow. Finally, a few days ago, I spotted a bumble bee on these purple-blue flowers…

It was busy collecting pollen for its hive — do you see the little yellow “baskets” on its back legs? Those store pollen — aren’t bees smart!
