Bees and Blooms

This is an oil over acrylic painting of a corner in a flower garden.  
I like the formal white post on which grow the blue/purple wisteria. 
The red roses offer a splash of contrast. 
As I was working on this painting, I noticed a hum and looked 
and saw several bees moving about from flower to flower. 
Originally I did not add them, but I was never happy with this painting 
until in reworking the picture I added the bees. 
Now it feels right.
