In any event, I'm hoping this slump will end soon. I skimped out on doing anything at all for Midsummer, aside from watching the sun set and sitting about thinking, which is very unusual for me. The longest day of the year has always given me the energetic jitters, but this year, between traveling and a few days of migraines, I wasn't feeling up to doing much of anything. I did however, have my very first sunflower open up and was able to pick the first harvest from our garden; a few fat summer squash, a giant zucchini and several chubby cucumbers. All of which were promptly eaten.
My heart absolutely sings when I get to spend time amongst these fuzzy creatures, as those who've read a while will know. They are so important not only to me, but to the entire world, and have so many wonderful lessons to teach me.
Stop and smell the flowers.
Don't be afraid to get a little bit dirty.
If you stand really still and ask really nicely, the bees will let you photograph them.
Really and honestly, this little bee even let me pet him ever so gently.
and lastly, even though the oregano the previous owners planted has fallen over, looks ugly and is trying to take over your herb garden leave it alone for now, because we bees love it!
P.S. Thank you everyone for stopping by my Tea Party tale over the weekend! I was completely blown away by the response and my dancing goat man even peaked in a few times to read your comments. I really am lucky to be married to such a silly fella.
