The bee balm is blooming.
I'm not sure if this flower has any special powers, but, to me, it seems like it should be an antidepressant. Who could be sad when looking at this flower?
This flower is obviously the life of the party.
My friend Ruth, in Michigan, gave me some of her bee balm, and it's thriving here in Ohio. Hers aren't blooming yet, but mine are already mid-party.
This is the kind of flower that Dr. Seuss drew in his books.
This flower should have a soundtrack from the 1980s: "Celebrate good times, come on...."
Look at its crazy top with the "court jester" hat tendrils that stick up in the air.
This flower screams summer barbecues, the coconut smell of suntan lotion, and frosty drinks of pineapple.
Celebrate! Thanks for your encouragement, Bee Balm.
