Hope you are having a good week.  We are blessed with a three day weekend so it's off to the farm for, hopefully, a rain-free day or two or three.  If I can get things edged and maybe mow again, I'll feel ahead of the game.  

In the meantime, thought I'd share this.

We can only assume that this is one of our ladies, since this flower is about fifty feet from the beehives.  I was very happy to capture this picture. 

The flower doesn't dream of the bee, 
it blossoms and the bee comes...
