Years ago I use to see honey bees constantly. I had to be careful when I was young walking in the yard. I would get stung because when I was young, I walked barefoot in the yard.
It has been several years since I have seen them but today I saw several working my gladolias. I kept watching to see which way they would fly but they outwaited me.
I understand a mite has devastated many hives. It was sorta good to see them. It brought back some fond and not so fond memories.
