Si je comprends bien, ce sont des fleurs de coton, je ne savais pas qu'il en existait des jaunes. Je ne connaissais que les blanches.
Ray: Les arbres sont nommés Martine, mais ils ne sont pas utilisés pour la production de coton ... ils sont utilisés pour la fabrication de colorants jaunes, mais leur utilisation principale est l'embellissement des jardins et des routes.
Des abeilles bien utiles
Bonne journée
Ray: Les abeilles charpentières sont utiles pour la pollinisation, Claudine, mais ont une mauvaise réputation comme les gros trous à mâcher dans les bois exposés sur les maisons.

Worn out from the toil of extensive slurping I'd say..
Ray: Quite out of breath after a hard morning of slurping, Chris.

I love this image.
Ray: Then I have achieved my goal for today, Philine...thank you.
It is always good to find a pretty place if you need to rest.
Ray: Yes...people who try to design attractive highway rest stops are onto the right way of thinking, Mary.

lovely image - nice spot for a bee to nap! Ray, how did you do the frame? I like it a lot and have been looking for an easy way to do frames.
It's at the top of the tree where the air is cooler picking up the breeze.
