Well-Nigh Wordless Wednesday: Bee on Catkin

I know the world has a ton of bee-on-flower photos, but I really love the flowers of mesquite trees, and bees on the flowers make them extra nice:

Ah, spring/summer in the desert!  What a glorious experience!  (Well, right up until it gets above 105 degrees outside.  Then it can become decidedly less glorious if you’re working out in the sun.)

    • True! I have experienced cold like that far less often than 105 degree temps though. Even in Colorado I didn’t get too many days of extreme cold! We did get one very chilly day in Tucson a little more than a year ago where the temp was about 15 degrees and the wind chill was zero – in the desert! I was quite thankful I still own a real coat and a snow scraper that day. Everyone else looked like they didn’t even know how to deal with the cold – and many of them were wearing only hoodies as their “coats.” Arizona natives just don’t understand cold!
