Sitting on My Porch

So this morning was wonderful! Slight breeze, the sun was shining, the day was starting out wonderful. I had gone and bought some new nectar for my hummingbird feeder and hung it in the hopes of seeing my birds fly in again and sip from it. The day was going great..... until the first honey bee showed up. Then another, then another, suddenly I had to whisk the baby and my computer off the porch. I had left the porch french door open, because the breeze was still wonderful. Until the first bee decided my house was more inviting than the feeder. I looked out and saw a SWARM of bees all over the feeder, the railing and flying everywhere!!

I had to carefully slosh the feeder with water to get the bees off, twice! and then bring the feeder inside. I am afraid the hummers won't be getting any nectar from my feeder anytime soon. The bees then started attacking me as I tried to get them off my porch with water. Guess my red shirt did not help matters any!

My little bee swarm

has inspired this!


These pots will soon be available on my etsy site! Hoping you all have a Bee-utiful day today!
