It is Peak Spring color time here in NW Ohio----and it is gorgeous. Chilly---but gorgeous. Normally, I keep my distance around bees, but the camera made me just a little braver. As my wise mom used to say "if you don't bother the bees, they won't bother you". That woman was a bee worshiper! We were never allowed to kill a bee. Not even when a whole bunch of bees(hundreds) swarmed down from the attic! She caught them in jars and took them outside---and never got stung. Me----I spent the night at a friend's house and took no chances!
