My hubby brought these lilacs home for me. They are a bold purple color and he got them from a farm house yard. The farm house is getting ready to be torn down to make way for a new by-pass. So sad. Anyone remember the song by Joni Mitchell? They paved paradise and put up a parking lot....ewwww...laaaaa laaaaa laaaaaa....(sorry, not a good singer)
I found this guy just hanging around in the lilacs doing nothing! How do I know it's a guy? Well, that's what male bees do. They hang around, and their sole purpose in life is to mate with the queen. That's it. They don't work, they don't even feed themselves, and come winter, the female (worker bees) throw them out of the hive! I'm serious.
Well, being the female that I am, I gotta get busy! Have a great weekend.
