Just what are glory dayz...


THAR BE BEES.....

All three of these shots are individual bees soaking up the nectar of the coneflowers...I haven't had any bee activity for 3 years...this to me is a glory day, even as the aerial spraying for corn-bore moths continues in the fields around me and the herbicide and pesticides are lavished on the fields through irrigation rigs...life pulls through regardless of our death wishes...


...when a day of shopping goes well...closeups can be seen on the 'White' blog...

...and the Earth wears her fluffy crown of supremacy...all is glory on a country road somewhere in Iowa...

Bees, Glorious Bees! We (the bees and I) have gotten along well in the pumpkin patch! It is just a buzz fest! I have had to mow the stupid lawn twice a week forever. Stop by sometime, I am always out there!!! Vines this week? Just name the day....

i live in an area that is extremely environmentally conscious and there is no spraying etc without a huge fight.. right now our oaks are dying from sudden oak death,, and no one will let them spray to save the remaining ones.. the fight has been going on for years,, meanwhile all the oaks continue to be infected and die..

somewhere you would think there has to be a happy medium,, but the human condition desiring always to be right has muddied the waters..

enjoy your bees,, and if you don't have enough of them,, come on down,, i have more than my share!!!

Hi Sharon. Maybe you can scout around and see where the bees go. They may have a wild hive nearby. I have more honey bees this year than I've had for several. Maybe that epidemic that was killing so many hives has passed.

I love coneflowers. Every summer I tell myself I should plant some next spring and then I forget. Yours are beautiful.

That's two more bees than I've since so far. . .but I'm keeping my fingers crossed. . .
Your cloud photos are inspiring too.
Happy Tuesday.
