Posted on 2021-07-182021-07-18 by the_dr_blueAssorted non-bee news (mostly) Roundup is starting to take effect on Bermuda grass. I can’t plant the buffalograss until I get that nasty invader out. A different bumblebee (or maybe robber fly mimic?? It flew different I thought) came to get water while I watered rainbow garden beds. Saturday morning dog. She is four years old as of Friday! Ironweed buds! Looking forward to the purple! Briar helping me garden on her birthday. Buffalograss corner of prairie is a good laying spot! I trimmed all the dying dill and cilantro out of the herb bed so I could see what’s going on with parsley, sage, and oregano better.

Wow, I’m amazed that Briar is already four!
Time flies when you’re having fun I suppose and she is the most fun- and friendship-oriented creature I’ve ever met 🤣
Happy Birthday to your good helper!
Also re: the different-looking bumblebee, might be a carpenter or miner bee. Miner bees look very similar to bumbles but are smaller. Carpenters are about the same size as bumbles.
Good idea, I’ll look at those too!
Yard looking so good. Bermuda is hell to get rid of. Good luck.
Thanks, I’ll need it 🤣
