i was born into a Human Bee Hive. Just as bees are struggling to survive in our toxic environments; i have had battles with the pollutions & Chemicals so prevalent in every aspect of daily life.
Join me as i emerge from the "fog" of a bug bombed life, on this "flight of the Bumble Bee".

No April fools joke here in the Desert!
This Thermometer is in the SHADE!!
It IS over 100 degrees today!
i LOVE This place!!
Planted Zucchini yesterday and discovered that our gorgeous sweet Mexican Avocado seeds are sprouting in the pots i planted them in a Month ago! i thought the cooler weather we'd had might have clobbered the poor dears but .... they're just beginning to peek out of the dirt...now they have excessive heat to deal with! Yikes!! Such extremes we have here. My camera is not able to get a good picture of the little dears yet ... but it won't be long now.
I hope they keep growing til we find a piece of dirt out in the desert to plant them in, as well as our home. Do you think our home will grow big and healthy ??
I do... Oh i DO!
The whole city has been spraying bug & weed killers all over Tarnation here. Our neighbors hire the Pest control and my Hub B. says sales on all those chemicals to kill off critters and their groceries(weeds) has gone through the roof!!
i worry about our avian friends who rely on bugs and wild weed seeds for sustenance and fortification of their diets. Haven't seen Roadrunner since the spraying started in force. ..but rumor has it that a certain lady who used to feed him raw hamburger wads has moved away, so perhaps He's found another source of goods...
i haven't been able to enjoy the great outdoors as much as i'd like because of the Toxins being sprayed all over ... but i still feel better here than i did in other places & i notice i feel much, much better when we spend a day out in the wilds away from city stuff. So, Some day we'll find just the right spot of dirt in which to plant & invite all the birds, weeds and Buggs that are being fumigated out of the cities.
We planted sunny Yellow Marigolds with the Tomato & Zucchini to help dis-invite some of the more ravenous buggs and invite the Good guys.... like BEE'Z !
