I’m kind of enamored of weird light – like on that tulip below. When it almost changes the color of the bee.
This poor Dahlia was just wrecked. Really most of them get that way even before they have a chance to open fully. The grasshoppers are brutal to them.
That said, the bees don’t seem to mind – or even notice. I’ve said it before, but there’s a lesson there. It’s something about purpose. For us humans, the purpose sometimes seems to be the flawless beauty. That’s a primary driver for us with the flowers we plant – and enjoy and love.
But for bees?? What’s for dinner? This seems like a good one! And as chewed up as that Dahlia is, it’s dinner. Its purpose.
