I was in the yard this morning, trying to get ready for the hurricane. I’m not expecting heavy damage here, but I wanted to make sure there wasn’t anything loose that could get blown around. We have some tall dahlias in the garden this year, and I wanted to cut the one that was in full bloom, to get it before the rain and the wind did. Turned out the bumblebees were there first:
