Flowers and Bees

"Flowers and Bees" in Danger

Flowers attracts bees, other insects and birds - and then nature reproduces. Not surprisingly pollution disturbs this process. Scents from the flowers are more specifically what attracts the insects making them move from flower to flower and the chemical composition of the scents mix with polluting chemicals in a destructive way. Most unfortunate.

This is a perfect excuse for me to post more Hepatica Nobilis images. The flowers smell of earthly freshness. Maybe you can "smell" it when seeing these two steaming fresh Hepatica photos? I know I do. :-)
