The chickens have been registering their displeasure at not being featured on the blog as often as they used to be...
"Put my photo up, or I peck your eyes out!"
And this is from a couple of weeks ago. Every year, the Williamstown Fair has a scarecrow contest in the days leading up to the fair. You see funny scarecrow dioramas everywhere. I just loved this one on our road:
Scarecrow in hammock with case of Budweiser (how un-Canadian!), with fake crows everywhere!
I managed to get stung on my middle finger today, not at the hives but in my own kitchen! I brought in some hive tools to clean off, because they were sticky with honey. I didn't notice that a bee had hitched a ride on one, and when I put it in the sink, she felt threatened and stung me. Poor little thing gave her honeybee life because I careful! It's okay, I'm suffering a bit. The stings don't usually bother me but my finger is swollen and achy tonight. I shall survive! Unlike the bee. :(
