Tree and Bee


This tree is confused. It’s both flowering and has no leaves. I think these are African tulip trees.

I really like this picture of a lupine? and a bee I took yesterday, waiting for the shuttle at work.

    From what I understand, many flowering trees do not produce leaves and flowers at the same time. I think it might be a mechanism similar to grapes…you cut back the leaves in order for the plant to redirect more energy into producing the fruit type of thing. 🙂
