First off, apologies if you came here yesterday and got some message about my blog being the purveyor of deadly computer nastiness. It wasn't actually my blog; it was poor Gordon's! I had a link to his blog in my sidebar, so Google put up the red alert. He is trying to get his blog back to normal asap. Meanwhile, I took the link down.
Here are some pictures I took at the end of May and forgot to post!
A very fuzzy bumblebee!
Moth on allium blossoms
Lovely honey bee!
And a tiny cute spider!
I submitted some photos to the Ontario Beekeeping Journal, and they printed one in the latest issue! I was very pleased when I opened up the magazine and saw it. :)
Now, about good things coming from bees...
On Saturday, we had to make a run to the bee supply place, which is fortuitously located near my friend Deb from Just Cats. We met through our blogs and have gotten together for lunch several times now! Deb kindly let me steal these pics for my blog. :)
After dropping by the bee place, we met up with Deb and the Retired Guy and had a relaxing lunch, followed by a walk around the pretty town they live in. It was pretty hot on Saturday. The car thermometer read 33C when we left for home!
We came back to Deb's after our walk for a drink and some kitty-love!
Audrey is so not impressed with me! I love her. Her personality is so like Emily's!
And look what Deb gave me:
This wonderful antique metal chicken doorstop. Or is it a bookend? Doesn't matter which! I just love it!!
So yes, good things come from bees: honey, beeswax, and an excuse for another visit with the wonderful Deb!
