Bees- lots of bees.

In South Texas this is not a good thing.

Yesterday I was watering plants near the little house ( a small house in our back yard), when I glanced up and saw them swarmed under the eave of the house.

Two things flashed through my mind.

How fast can I make it to the back door of the house , and

wow, wouldn't this make a great picture for my blog.

That is insane!

Luckily sanity returned , and I turned slowly and walked back to the house.

It really is serious. There have been deaths in our area due to bee attacks, and our neighbor's son-in-law died after an attack while mowing the grounds at work.
I started keeping an Epi-Pen and Benadryl in a desk by our back door , in the event one of us gets stung.

After the Bee Man sprayed them (can you believe he just used a spray can? - I hope he was a real Bee Man), he removed the comb to discourage them from returning.

We'll see.

He thought I was crazy as I tiptoed outside with my little Kodak EasyShare to get some shots for you.

Another exciting day in my yard. Wait until it gets to be 110 degrees.

I remember digging a "river" from your patio to the little house and our Barbie's would cruise along.
