Bumblebees...

My sedum is blooming and I have the biggest, fattest bumblebees I've ever seen! They must be an inch long and just as fat as they can be...they really love that sedum!

I've noticed that the bumblebees really like my celosia.

My bumblebees like my basil flowers, nasturtium flowers, and my fragrant antique roses!

I'm happy to have them because we have a shortage of honeybees here due to too many ChemLawns and overusers of pesticides. So, they are my main pollinator!

Do bumblebees sleep? I have had several that were just hanging on the flowers for a long time. One was even laying on its side and didn't move until I touched the flower it was on. Maybe they're intoxicated from too much pollen or nectar?
