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".

Thar Bee SNOW!
picture by John Gutenkunst for the Parker Pioneer
It Snowed on Sunday
at 4,131 ft.
These are the Whipple Mountains
on the other side of the Colorado river,
The California side.
It was an interesting site to see from our desert home
and This is as close as i want to get these days.
i never did like snow.
It got chilly here too;
Rain and sun at the same time
but at least the rain settled the dust that had been kicked up last week.
We get lots of blowing dust here.
We were glad for the rain
it was good for our experimental garden.
i have Zucchini coming up in a pot
lettuce and tiny carrots popping up in the box Sweet B' built for me.
We're going for broke this year...& built another, bigger raised bed.
Planted hierloom muskmelons
and will plant native squash that are said to do well here in our dry and thirsty land.
i hope to save seed in order to continue the process.
my rain barrel/bucket brimmed over with this storm so we're looking to install a larger vessle... Maybe Two!
