A Lone Bumble Bee

She was hovering over the ground of one of the flower borders. I guess she was looking for a nesting site. And while I was hoping she would choose my garden there was also the thought that she should move on for her own sake.  When I'm weeding I bumble around with a trowel not really knowing what I'm doing. Last year I destroyed the nests of those tiny bees that dig into sandy soil. Sad.

I recorded her flying, then we both agreed she should try somewhere else.
