Have you ever seen a dogwood so full of blooms?
Geese- everywhere I go, still! What do you suppose it means?
Our big excitement this year was that my husband got bees!
They're already making honey- what amazing creatures! They pollinate our fruits and vegetables, so we need them, if we want to eat. And I, for one, like to eat...

In recent years, I've seen no honeybees at all in this area, and the lack of honeybees is a global concern. To read a short article on Colony Collapse Disorder, click here.
The rest of the summer so far has been HOT- just humid, steamy, sweaty, nasty, and uncomfortable...
... which makes it seem like not such a bad thing to be stuck inside! I hope you are all having a great summer. I'm going to get back to work now, so I can show you the progress on the Book of Dreams.
