Covered in bees

There are very few lawns in our neighborhood – almost everyone has replaced them with flower or vegetable gardens.  There isn’t much grass, much to the dog’s disappointment, but there are lots, and lots of bees.  On an average evening walk we will see at least three different kinds of bumblebees, tons of honey bees (pretty sure there are at least a couple of people who have hives within a couple blocks of us), mason bees, and assorted other little winged pollinators.

Note to self: getting up close and personal with a giant lavender bush covered in bees to take pictures will result in me being covered in bees.
