CIVIC GARDEN CENTER - 3
Something called Mountain Hydrangea was blooming and I thought it was pretty – as you can see the flowerets are much larger and the shape of the bloom is more oval than what we think of for a hydrangea. There were several bushes, all white blooms, so I don’t know if they bloom in any other colors. They had a slightly sweet scent which I leaned in to smell and it wasn’t until a couple minutes later as I zoomed my camera in on a bloom that I realized this bush was covered in bees. I absolutely HATE insects of any kind, but I kept my cool and just stepped back and walked away, no worse for wear. Guess these bees were just too busy to bother with stinging me!
