Busy Bees

I have never seen so many bees enjoying the garden in front of my office! This bee was pollinating  the flowers of the Skimmia Japonica bushes. These bushes have very colorful red berries that are grown by the female plants. One male Skimmia can pollinate six females! The flowers are very fragrant and emit a very sweet and fresh scent. In fact, I have been sitting next to the bushes, every free moment to enjoy this natural perfume. 
The flowers are teeny tiny, but so delicate and beautiful!
