Busy as a bee in Mystic

Mystic — Bees were working feverishly collecting nectar and pollen Thursday among a line of rosa rugosa on Bay Street in Mystic.

Also known as saltspray rose, the hardy plant is a native of China, Japan and Korea, according to the University of Connecticut's plant database. It can be found in sandy areas, especially along the shoreline, and produces red rose hips that mature in late summer.
