It’s Sunday Post time! This is hosted by the lovely Caffeinated Book Reviewer and gives us all a chance to recap our week.
LAST WEEK ON ALTERNATIVE-READ.COM:
What’s your week been like?
I had my first fatality this week!!! Regular readers of this blog may know how bee shit crazy I’ve become over the last few weeks, but in case you missed Friday’s Bee Loving Post, then click the link and I’ll take you there!
It seems that one of my bees (yes, they’re in my garden so they’re mine lol) came in to our house looking for water. Woke up to find the poor little darling had drowned in less than half an inch of washing up water!
I tried to save it, but alas he was already gone… sniff.
So, if that is not crazy enough for you already, then what I did next might just convince you that I’ve gone over the edge, or at least teetering dangerously there: I took photos of the poor little chap, because quite frankly I’ve never really been that close to one to really study it. Plus I wanted to see what sort of bee it was.
Please turn away if you don’t want to look at a dead bee. It’s fatal, but fascinating and nothing to do with books. Although, I have started to buy books about bees!
It ain’t pretty!
On a positive note I did make a BEE BED with the help of my husband, (and a little bit of
nagging encouragement from my part…) and we have plenty of happy bees visiting our English Lavender, and bee loving Hebe. They’re not so keen on the French, but then, they’re attractive plants, so I love them!
Here’s a short video I took of some busy little bees… yeah, I uploaded this on YouTube. I didn’t really want to bother, but for some reason I recently discovered that WordPress is NOT video friendly. I uploaded my raw files here for speed and it just shows up as a link and then when you click on it the file downloads?? So although painstakingly slower, I had to upload to YouTube first to be able to share this with you!
Warning: Just bees enjoying themselves on my new BEE BED. Don’t wee yourself with too much excitement…
Happy Sunday! Here’s wishing you a happy week ahead! I do hope you are having a relaxing day! Stop buzzing around and take it nice and BEE-easy for the day…
