    Wow I hope bees don’t have allergies.  I guess if you ever wondered how bees pollinate flowers, there is your answer.  I just wish other plants didn’t just randomly spew pollen around in the hopes of it finding the right destination.

      No allergies that I’ve heard of, lol! I see lots of bees in my garden, but the pollen wrap this Mason was wearing was outstanding!
