To bee or not to bee....

Hi Everybody!

Okay the title is a groaner, I know. I couldn't resist it!

I am back home, all went well in hospital, the stent is out, and I had no bad side effects. I am just very tired, so just  a short post today. The tag is for wendy's challenge at Tag Tuesday, 'bees':



Bees are  vital for our existence, so please plant bee friendly plants and flowers in your gardens!







Have a great day, take care,
and thanks a lot for coming by!

  6. First, I was delighted to learn all went well at the hospital and you are resting. Second, your bee tag is absolutely gorgeous. I love that beehive and what appears to be an old fashioned ad. It's a great way to put a tag together. And your bee photos are great, too. I hope to build a bee house this summer, so I'm trying to do my part, too. We can never have too many bees.

  11. The title may be a groaner, Valerie, but if it introduces us to the plight of bees and the implications for the food supply it is a good thing. And your pictures are quite exquisite. I guess you have BEEn quite busy! Do I hear a second groan? It's good that you are back at home and relaxing with your feet up. I hope that people drop by and leave off little goodies for you. You deserve to sit on silk cushions and eat bonbons and drink endless cappuccinos. And I hope the weather will take a turn towards summer and the breezes will be gentle as you explore the enchanting nooks and crannies of Balconia-by-the-Rhine. I have sent strict instructions to all the birds and frogs to serenade you as you walk by, and for the blossoms to exude pleasant fragrances. Take care, stay well, rest up, walk softly, think good thoughts. Hugs and kisses. David

    1. Hi David! Groaned not, the bees need protecting. I read in the paper today that there are lots of beekeepers here, who have their hives in gardens, but mostly on rooftops of high buildings, and their honey has a wonderful quality. Today I am not being busy, but sitting with my feet up and watching nature documentaries on TV. I will listen out for the birds and frogs when I go out again! Have a great day, hugs to you both!
