Bee Balm Flower

Blooming

Blooming

In just one day, and despite the inclement weather, the sepals protecting the flower buds have folded back completely to reveal the inflorescence of Min’s bee balm…

Red Sepals

…the red colouration of the sepals has intensified…

Floret

…and one tiny floret is reaching up!

Jump For Joy

Min is so happy she feels like she can fly…

    • The photographer was me! Thanks for the encouragement…the Hitty’s very favourite photographer has been out of town on an adventure with Tansy for three weeks, but he is coming back tonight, so there will be some excellent Tansy Adventures to relate soon!

  1. and when all of the florets open, will Min have taken full flight and be buzzing happily around the celebrated flower?

  2. My Goodness, it looks to me as though Min is so enthralled that she is actually levitating. Her enthusiasm is contagious.
    Quimper Human, that little bee dress is awesome. The little black beads on the neck of that amazing little onesie and surrounded with the perfect black tulle skirt… and my word…those wings… I can’t stop smiling.

  3. Mjn you have made us all smile! We are pleased that your bee balm is in bloom…your patience and nurturing rewarded! And we love your special ensemble!
