Dahlia are amazing. They have a wide rage of flowers and bloom types. All seem to do well in the climate change conditions. I love the flamboyant, gorgeous huge flower heads. However, the common small size with a centre full of pollen is ideal for bees. As I watched an average size bee enjoyed the take, another slightly bigger came. The smaller immediately flew away.. later on it came back when the bigger left. I managed to take note of the two. Further away there're bigger dahlia bush. There're bigger crowd of bees. It seems there are territories and there're taking turn places. Bees do not fight or I hadn't seen them fight yet.
I went for an observation. This year the bees are huge. They look happy! I think the bee crisis is over... at least at these dahlia bushes!
