It is Tuesday in the Octave of Easter for 2019 and my first day back on Blogger since last Thursday when I notified you, dear reader, that I would be returning to blogging at this time; so, welcome to my 123rd segment of Tuesday's Truths.
I'm not the only one returning to activity: Bees have begun to visit my garden! I have not seen them at my place for years and I'm very grateful for whatever has brought them back! I suspect they like my Muscari which are the purple flowers seen in both images atop this entry.
The first on is the northern (partial) view of my garden and the second one is the southern (partial) view; and as you can see in the following series of photographs, a lone bee is enjoying nourishment from these flowers.
What an honor it is to have a bee visit me! There must be a hive close by! A bee (could be the same one is also enjoying my Crabapple Tree; but this bee is a bit camera shy and flew away; but I did "catch" the creature mid flight as seen in the photo below...
... and can be found about midway in the image (above my signature). I'll try and get pictures of him/her at this tree if he/she comes back. Meanwhile, here are a couple of photos of the flora from that tree which the bee seems to enjoy!
By the way, bees visiting my garden (in bygone years) are featured in my mini-movie, Here's The Buzz! Moreover, they are included in volume one of my book series, Words In Our Beak...
...where the stories are told from the perspective of a female cardinal. Here's the purchase info:
