These flowers are a bee-magnet!

These flowers are a bee-magnet!

If you look closely and there are heaps of bees on the flowers.

Fatsia japonica or ‘8-fingers’ flowering here [Auckland, NZ] in Autumn so I look forward to well-fed bees to keep visiting my garden in winter.

In my child-hood in Australia, this plant was a favored indoor house plant – I had never seen it flower. What a wonderful place and climate it is in Auckland that I see its flowers now on the one I inherited in the open garden with this house.
