For the second Sunday in a row it was nice and warm and sunny. Last week that inspired me to go out and shoot pictures of the back yard budding and blooming and waking up to the warmer temps. (See that box over on the right that says “Recent Post”?) Yesterday, since getting out of the house and walking around in the sun makes my watch happy, I did the front yard.
Right outside of our front door is this sage bush with purple flowers. We have a lot of “drought resistant” landscaping, including a number of different sage varieties. From some internet image surfing, I’m guessing this is a “Mexican Bush Sage” – put I’m probably wrong.
One thing it always has, 365 days a year, no matter the season, is bees.
I know some people get angsty around little buzzing things, but these guys have never bothered us at all.
Just like your mom said – you leave them alone, they’ll leave you alone.
They’re actually pretty calming to watch. I’m thinking that none of them is lying awake nights thinking about audits or cash flow or work comp liability.
