It must be the year of the bees and I’m not talking honeybees!
This year we are covered up with small and large bumblebees, sand hornets, black hornets and now the yellow jackets are showing up in full force. The sand hornets are trying to peel the bark off of my three year old lilac bush and I’m afraid they’re going to kill it. Along with the yellow jackets, the sand hornets are chasing our hummingbirds away from their feeders. We tried to pick a few peaches this morning and all the bees were after the fruit. Sand hornets will eat big holes in the fruit and the other bees takeover the rest of the ruined fruit!
We had 43* yesterday morning and 47* this morning and I sure hope the bees leave soon so we can work and enjoy these cool days that have barely made it to the mid 70’s.
