Project Black - OK One More

When I was at the Xeriscape Garden the other day there was a black bee that conveniently stumbled into my path. Hence, another post. It could even fit a movie...The Bee Movie. The flower is a Stokes Aster. I have never seen one of these before.

I will be sporadic in my posting for the next couple of weeks. It all depends on my access to Internet and time to convert raw shots of our travels.

I wish you all well as I embark on another great adventure!

Is this the garden on National Street? I think it was there when I lived there.

Beautiful shot.

Beautiful flower and very cool bee. I've never seen or even heard of a black bee before. Project black is a great learning experience as well as being a visual feast.

That's a beautiful picture. One of my favorites out here in a while (and that's saying something).

Hi Mike, wishing you well on your travels, once again I am extremely envious LOL.

Love the project Black pics and the one of the bee is great!

The Red Hot Poker plants were one of my mom's favorite flowers, they used to grow down the one side of our driveway while I was growing up, I havent seen one in ages.

Go safely and look forward to your pictures when you are able to get a connection.
