I think that all two of my faithful readers know that Dad was a beekeeper, and that I lived among bees from the day I was born. And, yes, I've been worried about the loss of honey bees the past few years. I don't think I saw even one last year. (Sigh) I read recently that this loss of bees is cyclical, and that it has happened both in the US and Europe more than once. About 100 or so years ago/200 or so years ago and so forth. Hmmm.
Oh look! There! In my neighbor's yard! In all that lavendar! This is not a great photo. I took more than 20 shots and this the only one that is okay. But the bees are back and I'm happy.
