a flower and a bee

yesterday I went to the community garden area to put some stuff in the compost bin.  When I got there I was surprised to see a flower sticking out of a bin with a bee busy working away.  It was rather nice out but the cooler temps and rain are supposed to return for the weekend.

  1. How nice to see the flower and bee. Such a stark contrast to the surroundings. We had snow flurries yesterday and very cold wind.

  8. Love the tenacity of nature. The blossom should give us all motivation for determination! Having problems with internet here at my inn in México. Hope you can find my Mazatlan Daily Photo blog: http://kate-mazatlanmexico.blogspot.mx

  16. Hey, Bill, congratulations! You wrote a compost about to bee or not to bee! What a guy! Seriously, glad you got some good weather, even if it was a bit temporary. It got colder and more windy here, too. Yuck!
