I dared not get close enough to ask, so just snapped a few shots as it flitted in and out of the pollen pots.

    1. I wasn’t afraid. 😊 As long as you don’t get between them and the “juice” you are fairly safe. Haha. I have gotten closer when necessary. I just make aure they are very busy and Im not wearing perfume!


    1. My husband has asked me to beg my readers’ forgiveness for his error because he spoke without looking first (he is a perfectionist you know) and thought this was a casia fistula. But further research confirmed for him that it is, in fact, a yellow elder. oops…I love it too. The first time I saw it I was amazed because it was Springtime and the one I saw was absolutely huge. It was like a yellow beacon from down the street. Thanks Dan.
