Refuge for the weary

symphyotrichum_novae-angliae

I had Fall flowering plants in mind on a recent walk along the Sentier Nature de Tomifobia, an hour before sunset. The beautiful purple flowers of Symphyotrichum novae-angliae stood out along the path so I snapped away. To my surprise, I noticed this plant covered in bees, sleeping bees. I thought that bees went back to their hive for the night but these were dozing in anticipation of the following day. Why spend all that time travelling when you can start your day exactly where you want to bee! (pun intended)
