Ohhh how it feels timely to create a post about flowers – good for the spirit (mine and hopefully yours).
When planting flowers from seed I tend to favour varieties that attract beneficial insects to the garden – love those bumble bees and lady bird bugs.
Zinnia California Giants
Marigold Naughty Marietta
Here are some of my favourite bee & ladybug attracting flowers:

Some bee only attracting flowers I love:
* Lawn chamomile
Flowers are a gift. Now don’t you feel refreshed and uplifted?
Over the Christmas, new year break, I have been enjoying photographing my garden. However I have not chosen to use my professional cameras – instead choosing my camera phone.
This close up of a giant sunflower and honey bee gave me joy to photograph. Love the glistening light on the bee’s wings. Hope this image puts some ‘sunshine’ into your day.
