    1. Yes, I've spent some time observing these flowers and a few bees that passed by...some days I just need to calm down and feel nature's peace, this was one of those days :-) Posted 3 months ago

The western honey bee or European honey bee is the most common of the 7–12 species of honey bee worldwide. The genus name "Apis" is Latin for "bee", and "mellifera" is the Latin for "honey-bearing", referring to the species' production of honey.
