Reminder's Of The Changing Seasons

Reminders of the changing seasons are all around me. Seems like just yesterday that the bees were busy were busy collecting nectar. Maybe I just noticed them more this year because of all the concern over declining bee populations. I love honey in my tea - so I have a vested interest in keeping them healthy and supplied with appropriately "nectared" flowers.

Yesterday , the fog banks were a visual reminder of the encroaching Fall. The skies cleared and the afternoon was glorious - if I had to chose a word to define the rest of the day it would be "perfect". Last night, however, the weather turned again. It was in the mid 40'sF (7-ish C) and this morning the skies are cold and heavy gray. Rain is forecast for later today and the first flood watch of the season has been posted.

I love all of the seasons - each has it's positive aspects -as well as it's negatives ! I can't change the weather so I really try to take notice of the small changes - and savor each one.

Happy weekend to all - whatever season you are in -enjoy !

It is scary about the decline in the bee population. We've always had a lot of honey bees, and this summer they built a hive in a tiny shed where my husband keeps some tools. We will have to call someone to transport the hive elsewhere eventually, but for now we are enjoying imagining what the hive looks like. We don't dare open the door!
