Now that we seem to be out of the woods, freeze-wise, we’ve turned the lawn sprinklers back on and are hoping the grass will come back. It’s not completely gone, but it definitely needs to do some recovering. Monday was lovely – warm enough to have windows open, but not so warm that certain family members needed the air conditioning on. I stepped outside at one point and noticed this little web in the grass with the water droplets shining in the sun.
Thing 1 had mentioned that there was a lot of bee activity at one of the bushes in the front yard, so I checked that out, too. I saw a wasp, a honeybee, and a very methodical bumblebee. The wasp and the honeybee went all over the bush. The bumblebee, though, was conservative with her movements. None of this “all over the place” business – she went horizontally around the bush, from branch to branch, sticking her head in the little flowers and then left. Bumblebees are just a marvel of flight mechanics, aren’t they?
Has anything been busy in your yard or garden lately?
