Earlu Summer Flowers

 The firespike blooms are fullmof nectar, and we can see many sunbirds feasting on them.
 The yellow Rattlepod attracts bumblebees. These creatures are hard workers who start foraging for food at sunrise, and still are at it 12 hours later! Since the flowers of the rattlepod open lazily at noon, they are still attractive to the bumblebees at dusk.
 The scented Valencia flowers attract the creatures of the night.In the morning, they have a scent similar to freshly baked bread.
I am very sorry to hear about the death of Arija, who always posted lovely pictures and wrote nice comments. She was a mainstay of Our World Tuesday.
