They had "Be-Ins" in the 60s, but in the summer every evening can be a bee-in. Popped round my folks, there were 3 species playing in the blue stuff that might be called campanella, or the frail herbs that the bees suck at quickly as the stem bends right over.
I tried to pet a common carder worker bee, pollen baskets full, but it wouldn't let me.
The sun sank slowly below the rooftops. I went for a run accompanied only by birdsong. It was beautiful.
