Near our home, there's a spot that has been gradually covered by false spirea (Sorbaria sorbifolia). The area is not very orderly, but these plants have a beautiful autumn colour and when they are blooming, they provide food for many insects.
This year, there are many bumblebees, my favourites!
During the day, you can hear their happy buzz, but what I find funny is that early in the evening the bumblebees (and some other insects) just stay on the flowers, without moving. Are they all resting? Sleeping?
If they are asleep, are they dreaming? :) What would they dream of on a beautiful July evening? Of the scented lilacs of June...
... or perhaps the lovely false acacias that their cousins can visit in Italy?
