Autumn Floatig By

Maple leaves fall from my tree and float by in the river.

20th October 2014- Queen Bees

queen bees have come into my house for winter

For many years, with the coming of autumn queen bees came into my house looking for a quiet corner to sleep through the winter. In spring they asked to go out again. Then disease came to the world's bee population and one spring no bees asked to go out. After our glorious summer my house is again buzzing with bees and how welcome they are.
