Stealth...riders on the wind...

OMG...I was so excited...
saw my first honeybees of the summer
and three of them in one day!!!
Well, the toxic aerial spraying of the fields
has ceased, so wildlife gets a break...

The baby bumblers are out in full force as well,
bumbling on the sedum, I love it when these
plants start to flower, the wasps and bees
flock to it's fruit...now I can breathe easy...
till next toxic season anyway!!!
MONSANTO
KISS MY ASS
!!!


And speaking of stealth...
my Dad and his trusty stead,
the B-mer,
his beloved BMW.
He drives down to the micro-farm every Sunday
to visit his girls
me n Scratchy...83 and still motorin'...
now that's what I call FREE SPIRIT...

So, what do you REALLY think about Monsanto?--LOL!!
I agree. It's amazing ANYTHING can live through all the crap that rains down on us.

..we have had bees all summer. the flowers i plant are for ME, but i share them with the bumble bees and the honey bees. the huge field of buckwheat flowers had thousands of bees. you could stand yards away from the field and hear the intense buzzing. i love to watch the baby bumblers. as my porch has flowers, i get to see them close up.
one of the joys of summer.

I just love the bees going for the sedum, I have it all over my yard, the temps are going to get cooler so may not see so many bees. Your Dad is a hoot!!!!! Good for him getting out and about! Hugs Mary

We all need to do just what you are doing Sharon, grow as much of our own food as we can (using non GMO seeds) And support organic farmers through farmers markets etc. You can find non-GMO shopping lists online. It's not easy that's for sure.
And three bees means there are more somewhere!!

Yeah Monsanto can kiss mine too... they're evil...
Your dad's cool :), mine had a BMW too a long time ago... well 20 years ago... I rode with him( well behind him) to the South of France... quite an adventure...pity I was a moody teen at the time...
And bees.. I am toying with the idea to get a couple of beehives... we'll see... your late BD surprise will depart my home tomorrow... ;)

Good for your Dad!

I think it's terrible that you have to put up with crop dusting. How in the world do they expect anyone to eat if there are no honeybees to pollinate our food?!?!?
