The...and BEES!

Had to step outside...
Lord knows I need to finish things inside, but it's Spring and the birdies are singing.
The bees are buzzing, and this...
needed to be cut back.  The cuttings are now filled, in vases throughout the house.
and these white Iris's  are all coming into bloom.  As I got closer, I spotted...
our favorite friend, busy, working, toiling away.  Diligent in his goals. Good work ethics to learn by.
I am humbled by a bee!

I am off to finish, what I started this morning, and I shall be diligent in my endeavor!
I will!

I just love to see what is blooming in everyone's garden. In the north we are far from the glory of the iris ~ we're just now coming into daffodil and tulip season. Do I see perhaps a kindred soul who enjoys white gardens as I do? Hope your project was completed as you hoped! :)

Lisa, I have to tell you about a Bee that I saw stuck in a spiders web. I could hear this loud buzzing sound. My mother was with me and looking around we found where it was coming from. A large bumble bee was stuck in a spiders web. Looking further in the rocky area out came this HUGE black widow spider. We grabbed a stick to scare the spider off while we tried to save the bee. We had two sticks and were pulling the sticky web off the bee both working carefully like surgeons it seemed. Beside us was another bumble bee hovering nearby and very obvious he/she was watching us save its friend. It stayed about 2 feet away about 2 feet off the ground, pointed in our direction and literally waiting. As soon as we got the bee free from the web it united with the other bee and they flew off together. I cried.

Of course...the black widow met her doom.
