Miracle in my backyard.


A miracle so small I could barely see it.
One honeybee pollinating a brussel sprout plant that survived the winter.
I shouted Hallelujah and immediately repented for all the honeybees I've squashed with my big feet over the years.
(Honeybee shown above is not actual honeybee from backyard nor is it shown actual size. Had it been actual size I would have run from the backyard screaming like a sissy boy.....ummmm, I mean like Batman chasing The Riddler)

I can't bee-lieve it! You must bee so happy! I have been buzzing with joy all day, anticipating fresh brussel sprouts this fall. :o)

Bee sweet to me....

I can't believe that your big feet are the ones responsible for our sudden bee population decline last year...first it's the house in Greenville (SC) and now your big feet! I demand you cease and desist from bee stomping...it's not good for our health, you know! Really cute post Uncle Joe...thanks for sharing. Oh, and David sent me by

May your future be filled with many honeybees!
Awesome story!
Here's also hoping you don't accidentally and tragically find a hive - but I'm sure the story could be good (um, that sounds like I want something tragic and I don't!)!
I am drinking and reading blogs tonight. Don't mind me. :)
