Bee in Flower

imageI was sad to see this little cutie becoming sluggish from the cold. I gave her a pet, a few hot breaths and left her in a flower near our shed that has many carpenter bee holes. These guys do hibernate. Many folks aren’t too happy about these guys drilling holes into their woodwork. I don’t mind. They make my flowers happy by pollinating them.

  1. Awww, what a sweet little sad bee face! Great photo. So kind that you gave her a second chance to get into her hidey-hole. Them carpenter bees, now, if they would just drill their quarter-inch holes right where I put the “x”, it would save a lot of work. Perfect for a quarter inch carriage bolt! They drill the holes, I pop in the bolts, voila! But my carpenter bees have never shown any interest in actually working…they just drill holes and leave piles of sawdust. Oh well. 🐝 Thanks for sharing this. It cheered me up this morning!

    • Thank you for the sweet comment Laura!! 😘
      They do make perfect holes for building. I always wondered what we could accomplish if we could talk to animals. That’s the superpower I would want, if someone was handing them out. I’d guess most of them would say, “Stop killing and/or eating us…” 😲
      However, I’d like to think of it more like a Snow White situation… a few sung notes of “ha ahah, ha ahah… ” and they help me clean the house!” πŸ˜‰πŸ˜‚πŸ˜… Haha!!
