We have a number of flowering bush and plants around the house, and the blooming Pohutukawa tree accentuated the spring/summer atmosphere. It certainly is such a spectacle, it's bound to get noticed. Especially the busy bees!
The first time I saw the bees here in 2008, I was in awe. And I still feel fascinated with them whenever they turn up as the flowers enjoy the sun. It's because they're bigger than the ones I am accustomed to in the Philippines, and they have a distinct black and yellow colour. It's quite interesting to watch them buzz from one flower to another, a relaxing moment on sunny weekend afternoons.
