Signs of Spring...

I love this time of year!
I think Spring is my favorite season. I love the way everything starts to waken and grow!
It is just miracle upon miracle.

Today we are helping Spring along by doing a favor for a friend of Tim's.
One of the guys he works with keeps bees, and he received a shipment today while he is in DC.
So Tim offered to go to the Post Office and pick them up. They are now out in the front room, in their little boxes, humming away.
It is a little disconcerting, but they have no interest in anything but the queen. Tim said there are about 60,000. They are just sitting there, quietly, undisturbed. I hope we don't have an earthquake...

A few more things are waking up.

The weeping Cherry, that is so beautiful every year.

A tulip!

60,000 bees? Not a thrilling thought at all, but a nice thought on your part to bee-sit for Tim's friends. Things must just be all a'buzz at your house! First time we have ever heard of anyone bee-sitting 60,000 bees in their family room!
Love, and take care....
