Late Working Bees

Leave a comment

At sunset, there were about a half-dozen bees working hard on our crown flower.  I typically only see bees in the yard in the early morning and usually on the gigantic-overgrown basil. However, I cut back the basil (it was taking over walking paths!) so the bees are now more interested in the other flowers we have. They were so calm and let me photograph them for about five minutes. Thank you pollinators for all that you do.

Things I love: justice in all forms; flowers; locally grown food; cloth-diapering; breastfeeding; feminist theory; outdoor play; beaches; wine; Divine interventions; 4-H and coffee. Things I loathe: racism; homophobia; toxic crap; misogyny; litterbugs; the zombie apocalypse and pitbull-haters. My formal education is in sociology, gender studies, and public policy. I'm also a Lactation Educator; 4-H Youth Development coordinator a Certified Master Gardener and a graduate of a Permaculture Design Course. I've been blogging for several years on dozens of topics- everything from women's health to breed-specific legislation. But the thing I like to write about most is my gardening, food adventures and my kids. So there you have it. Please be kind. Thanks.
