A walk among the flowers can do the soul so much good.
the amazing, captivating bees...
I didn't always enjoy bees.
In fact, we had a very bad relationship.
Every summer one of them would sting me...
Now we get along---and I don't mind sharing garden space with them at all!
But I still don't like yellow jackets, wasps, hornets...
and right now they are their normal angry selves---
another sign that we are in the last days --
Do you get along with the bees of your summer garden?
Today is a very sad day for me--my trip to see my kids and grandkids has fallen through
and my hubby is resting so there will be no trips today among the dahlias at the farm
or the evergreens and vine maples of the mountains
or along the ocean beaches
to lift my spirits.
But I have come up with another way to help lift them...
today and tomorrow
(or on whatever day you find this post),
I give you permission to copy one of these photos as my gift to you
and use them for any personal, NON-commercial use you desire
(it MUST be a NON-COMMERCIAL use).
And a friendly reminder, permission is given for just this ONE post please.
I hope that you will find one that blesses your spirit today:)
