    How many bees are in the picture (on the flower). And can you name the flower?

    I'll let you know when someone gets both right.... :D

    I see 9 bees (and there's probably more) and I think the plant is a Joe Pye Weed (or Eupatorium)

    10 bees, 2 butterflies and a moth. I would agree with the flower being some variety of Joe Pye Weed, but that doesn't bloom until later around here...

    I assume we are NOT counting the bees in the hives in the background...!

    Yes it is Joe Pye.

    And there are 11 bees.

    Not counting the hives in the background.... ;)

    The picture was from last year. It is not yet out this year.

    The temporary enjoyment of winning 50 million dollars.... ;)

    A friend of mine explained that the 5 dollars he plays every week on the big lottery was the best "vacation" he ever takes. He says for 5 dollars, he gets to sit back for 10 minutes every week, and imagines what it would be like to win 50 million dollars. He gets to daydream, escape, and just think wonderful thoughts.

    So for you.....just think you won 50 million dollars, and enjoy yourself for the next few minutes. Then.....get back to work..... ;)
