Busy As A Bee

It's been a busy work week around here.  Heck, it's flat out been a busy season, as Springtime usually is. 

Just ask the bees. 

Our holly's bloomed this week with the 80 degree sunny days we've been having, bringing every bee within a 5 mile radius to our backyard.  

Our 3 big holly's are literally vibrating with bee energy.  I wish you could stand here and just feel their energy.  Photo's don't do it justice. 

The bees are swarming over the holly bushes which is great for them but I haven't seen any bees on our strawberries or apples which are also in a blooming frenzy.

So while the bees are busy doing their thing, I too am getting ramped up for a busy week ahead.  I always take a week off in April as a "staycation" week getting things done around the house and garden. 

Next week is my designated week.  I have to go in today (Saturday) for most of the day but after that my charming personality won't be at the office until May 1st. 

That's TEN, count em, TEN WHOLE DAYS of dedicated staycation time.

Whaa Haaa Ha!


  1. Hope you have a wonderful staycation! With all that you get done WHILE working full-time away from home, we'll expect to see mountains moved by May 1st!

  2. Whoo-hoo! Enjoy your time off!

  3. Ten days of bliss! (no doubt busy and exhausting bliss, lol) but still, how grand :-) Can't wait to see what you choose to do, where the hours take you amongst your chosen projects...

    Can't wait to hear my beeeezzzzz - tho it'll be awhile yet - no blooms aside from a few crocus. I can only dream of 80 degrees!

    Enjoy your time! PS your frog image is priceless, lol

  4. Whoo hoo! Great time for some time off. Don't forget to relax a bit.
