It was a cool morning. I was in my garden taking pictures of these very lovely blooms, and suddenly noticed this dear little honey bee sitting atop the thyme. He seemed to be shivering and too cold to move. I took a moment to sit with him until the sun inched down into the lawn to warm his wings.
He didn't seem to mind as I took his picture--in fact, I am sure the little fellow wiggled-waved a friendly antennae at me. As the sun finally touched and warmed his chill, he stretched his wings, smiled a wee bee grin and gracefully flew away, but not before circling my head a time or two.
A side note: Awhile back I posted a photo of flowers I thought were thyme. However since then I have discovered those blossoms were actually rosemary! Rosemary is delicious in salads and soups, and the leaves and flowers make a tasteful garnish for roasts and hamburger.
