    Those are wonderfully muted colors, and the bee activity really animates the photo. You never stop giving yourself new photographic challenges, do you? 🙂 I’ve been noticing Caryopteris down here lately, too – such a nice blue.
    Hosting the symposium must be a lot of work. I hope you’re able to enjoy the event. And the website – now there’s a major project! I helped out for a year or so at Bellevue Botanical Gardens with their plant records/GIS mapping project. I confess I never did understand the software. I mainly followed directions as to what to input, and was happiest when I could go out into the gardens and check to see what was right and what needed updating. Have you seen BBG’s map and collection search? I’m curious to know what you think about it, and what UBC is doing in comparison.

    Thanks, Daniel, for featuring our Caryopteris x clandonensis and for the fascinating information about its origins. We are working to increase the pollinator appeal of our Ornamental Gardens and your photo testifies that C x c contributes to that goal.
