sweet almond verbena and wasps ......

i was floating in the pool yesterday morning, looked up and the sweet almond verbena at the west end of the pool was working alive with flying critters, i got closer and a lot of them looked a bit like wasps but the wasps weren't alone there were all kinds of flying critters all over the thing
(it's in heavy bloom right now) it looked like the whole bush was moving) the top part-it's about 15 ft in all was in the sun and that was the "busy" part
it almost creeped me out
so a word of warning-plant your sweet almond verbena away from places a lot of people will be occupying

Wasps and bees all sated and happy on a flower won't bother me. Mine act like they are drunk or something.

Ah! Maybe that's what's wrong with the Paper Wasps lately...they drown themselves in the water bowl.
