For nature lovers and flower enthusiasts, one attraction you should never miss when visiting the city of Pines (Baguio city) is the Botanical Garden, it is a peaceful refuge to reconnect with nature, you’ll see here the most beautiful flowers that comes in range of colors from bright pink, red, orange, and yellow, name it, they all have it! Other flowers with lovely blossoms turning to wonder shades of blue, purple and deep red in the afternoon, it added interesting textures to the garden.
I never miss to visit this place when in the ‘’City of the Cool Sun’’ I’m putting more time to enjoy strolling around the stunning hidden paths of the outstandingly handsome foliage and perennials grown directly in the ground.
The buzzing of bees and the presence of other pollinators like honeybees and butterflies caught my attention, couldn’t help but snap few photos, taking snapshots is fun and rewarding undertaking while enjoying the cool weather. Let me show you some of the photos taken there but I tell you one thing, flowers be the most frequently photographed subject of nature but to include the honeybees pollinating the flowers makes it more interesting, that should be kept in mind too. Hope you’ll agree after viewing, Let’s get started!

Baguio Botanical Garden is really a pollinator- friendly garden, you’ll see here the process of pollination, on how honeybees pollinate the flowers. Stunning Dahlias produced the larger flowers of all varieties.
Me with the honeybees working together they will pollinate the flowers, I do the shots. This is ‘lil fun Jo!
Focusing very close to the subject to get this result, macro shots!
I’m very careful in doing this, timing must be precise enough not to disturb bees.
Dahlia flowers- the best flowers for the honeybees, it provides pollen and sweet nectar which is the favorite of the honeybees however, you’ll see the Inula and everlasting flowers which are also a honeybee favorite as well.
