The bees' knees?

This morning was a definite reminder that we live in Minnesota and not in Louisiana or Florida. It was "in the teens" cold and won't get above freezing all day. Tomorrow and several days thereafter temperatures are supposed to be back in the low to upper 40s.

This evening we're going to attend a local Audubon chapter (Wild River) meeting to hear about solar panels. At least that's what I think I remember being the description that prompted adding the meeting to the calendar. Then tomorrow evening we're going to check out a local "artists' book club." Saturday it's off to the arboretum for an all day session on bee keeping. I'll be curious to see if we actually decide that keeping bees is a good idea after we learn what it's all about. Look for reports on these scheduled adventures. Meanwhile don't you find it interesting that even Anonymous kept bees?

Here Is the Beehive

By Anonymous 

Here is the Beehive
But where are all the bees?
Hiding away where nobody sees.

Here they come creeping
Out of their hive,
One and two and three, four, five.
