Hide and Seek

“Maybe if I hide my head under these petals the other bees won’t find me.  You didn’t see me!” said the bee.

    Lovely shot – I love bee balm :-).

    • Is that the name of the flower? Thanks! I neglected to look at the signs in the garden.

      • Sharon K. says:

        Hi, yes, in the US anyway. The proper name I believe is “Mondarda”. 🙂

      • I Googled it and yes that is the proper name but thank you again, you are amazing! Any chance you know what flower the previous bee is on? 🙂

      • Sharon K. says:

        What a lovely compliement 🙂 I love to garden and also Monarda is common in the Midwest and grows wild, although a pale lavender version rather than the bright red hybrid in home and botanical gardens. Both are lovely :-). Sorry, I can’t identify the pale pink flower but wow, it’s gorgeous. The subtle color is just lovely 🙂

      • Thank you for the assistance in identifying the bee balm and the compliment as well. I have more shots of the pale pink flower which I may post later.

    Great shot, Teri, and that’s a monarda, all right. I once had them in a coupe beds but they can be invasive and will take over the area if you’re not careful. They sure are purdy, tho. 🙂

    Super photo Teri, yup it’s Monarda…and Chgojohn is correct…they can be invasive. But as also said “they sure are purdy.”
