For All My Bee Friends
Today will be a hot one here. In fact, it's already (at 11:01 am) a record breaker. On my little hill it's measuring 93.2 F (34 C), and the previous record was 88 degrees. For all you non-locals, this is just crazy heat. It's May and our average temperatures are in the upper 60's (20 C). Everything is watered, the birds have fresh clean water, and I have hunkered down in the house as not to melt. I'm worried about the chicks, but of course, I got and A+ in 'Worry' so that's no surprise.
But the bees. Oh those bees. They are busy busy busy. Today is a work day of great proportion! Listen to them buzz!
