I never tire of watching bees. I, too, find them irresistable. I know this is a native plant site but have you seen those dinner plate dahlias? They really are the size of a dinner plate.

Not up close an in person, only pictures of them. Not sure what kind of bee this is, but some are almost an inch long. I do miss the little honey bees that i remember as
a kid growing up.
