And So It Finally Happened

And so it finally happened.... 




on a sunny October afternoon. 



I took to my apiary to trim the grass from around the bee hive. 



Who knew that bees weren't into giant, human powered lawn shears. 


Four crazy bees and two stings later.....I survived to find that a truly magical rainbow had appeared, out of literally nowhere, to wash the curse words out of my mouth. 

The end.

  10. I was wondering if they have a bad attitude towards gas powered objects..Hubby has done weedeating around the hives with no problem but it sounds like they don't like your piece of equipment...I will keep that in mind.

    Love the rainbow of 'forgivness'. xo

  30. Jana - I am not allergic to bees and didn't really have any reaction at all, besides a small red dot.

  31. Sherri - I was using the lawn shears (the giant grass scissors) so no gas powered/noisy object was there. They just didn't like me clipping around the front of their hive!
