pollen freaks

The morning glories I planted this year have been doing really, really well. They must like the soil in the back yard.

They keep blooming and reblooming, and both types I planted seem to be doing well.

We have even had a few days lately where it was really overcast and they were fooled into continuing to bloom well into the afternoon.

The pollinators seem to love them as much as I do. I have frequently noticed what has become a common sight: a bee entering and then backing out of a bloom, totally covered in pollen.

Even fading blooms are still attractive.

I usually look at bees to see if they’re wearing their pollen pants, but these guys have been coated head to toe!

Many days we also see blooms with a dusting of pollen on the petals.
