BEES


I just had to share a photo of our Australian sky (taken today in my garden). The forecast for today is predicted to be 29C (84.2F), so I went outside nice and early to pull some weeds and mulch. But it wasn't early enough as the bees had come out for a feed and were swarming everywhere. I gave up after an hour as I was getting slightly uneasy with bees buzzing about my ears and will try again tomorrow, perhaps 7am. I have only been stung once in my life, underneath my foot and that was when I was a carefree, barefoot child.

That is THE bluest sky!

I looked up at a plane going over and was just awestruck. I grabbed the camera and took several shots. I think, at my stage of life, now that I "take time to smell the roses", one takes in colour and the surrounding beauty. I'm starting to realise that the longest time I have is short.

Beautiful view. Lovely land.

Thanks, Brenda, We're in a valley, 360 degree views all around; a very pretty place. There's an aerial photograph in the left column. Takes 6 hours to mow it all at once!
