Pollen munchers

One of the best things about living where we live is the fruit. The peaches, apples, pears, and figs make living in the sticks more palatable if you'll excuse the pun.

They've been popping out more and more each day. Today, the pear tree was showing out. The bees were down with this latest development. You could hear the buzz.

I tried to shoot pictures of one of the little pollen munchers but they didn't have time to pose. The picture below is from our morning walk.

I wrote my column for Sunday today. It's about the bees. That's probably a shocker to you all.

Here's hoping your Wednesday was a good one.


  1. Good Luck with the bees! I suppose you've done the neccessary homework on all aspects of raising bees: cost,time, equipment,profit, getting stung etc..

  2. I can tell your going to really enjoy this “bee keeper’ thing. I will be planting my Loofah plants as soon as Nick gets me a trellis built. They say when they bloom flowers, it will attract lots of bees. Im not a fan of that thought but Im willing to accept it for success.

  3. The honey bee is an amazing insect and I hope that you have great success with this new venture. It must be beautiful to see a whole tree in full blossom.

    Hugs, Julia

  4. I am enjoying our new hobby. It is going to be fun to follow the developments. My nephew is still in the learning stage here in NC. And YES we have blooms, SWEET!

  5. This is exciting and it will be fun to follow your exploits and adventures with the bees. I love that picture-again..outstanding

  6. I so love this time of year(well, ours isn't here yet---soon). I love the sound of bees humming along amongst the trees and flowers. They have never bothered me--maybe because I am not afraid of them? Wasps, however, whole different sort of "bee"....

  7. It will be nice to have your very own fruit trees and flowers pollinated by your very own bees. Satisfaction must be high.

  8. Bees are so important aren't the
