Busy Bee

Crocus with bee inside

I seem to be obsessed

By all the colors of Spring

Bee in my bonnet

I can be found snapping pics

In random neighbor’s yards


Today it was so nice out again I just had to take a walk down the block to check out all the neighborhood yards to see how much Spring growth had appeared.

Well I was pleasantly rewarded as one neighbor had an abundance of vibrant

crocus blooming. The bees and I were happy and one even paused for a pic😊

  1. Love that photo. I will be so glad when I can get out snapping pics of flowers again. My hopes have been dashed. After 8′ on Sunday, yesterday the temperature plummeted, the winds came up and the snow began to fall and swirl so it is once again winter. It snowed a good part of today, is supposed to snow tomorrow and Saturday before Sunday without snow.

      1. Bitter winds today have brought more blowing snow tonight and it’s supposed to last at least overnight. Nearly blew away today coming out of the grocery store. 🙂
