The wonderful adventures of making the best of life, no matter what you start with!
Now that i think of it, i'm not sure if i have seen many honeybees around here so far this year. I'd like to think i have, but i can't seem to remember.They are usually abundant when my silky dogwood blooms, but i cut that one back so far this spring that it won't bloom 'till next year so there goes my gauge. :o)
I've seen a bunch flying around my mint. :-S They're awfully cute and fuzzy.
We haven't seen them yet. That makes me so sad.
We have had a few honey bees but with all the rain it is hard to tell just exactly what is going on. Have you ever thought about having your own bees........?
Yes bees certainly say 'summer'...we were so late with our's this year due to all the rain. Great shot, Kim
Icebear,I hope they increase. I've been seeing some in the garden now as well. This is such great news! Wonder why it took so long for them to show up. Maybe a hive swarmed and landed near us.~Faith
Leah,Are your honey bees fuzzy with pollen, or are you seeing bumblebees? I like Bumblebees too. They are so.... so... nostalgic, I guess. Kind of a silly thought. :oP~Faith
Chai Chai,Yes, I used to have a hive and would like to get them again. I have been looking into various alternative hive types and want to try them.~Faith
Kim,Rain brought yours out late? I hope it's just weather related here. With the honeybee populations in such decline - the US lost 30% this year alone, I believe - I was afraid I'd seen the last of them. My neighbor used to have 8 hives. They all died off. He was a LONG time bee keeper!~Faith
SFG,You either! I hope they show up at your place soon.~Faith
I always enjoy hearing from others. If you become a regular commenter, I'll assume you are being friendly and pretty much comment regularly right back. :o) God bless and have a terrific day!
