|dead bees Spring 2011|
Every year for a number of years now we’ve had bees come into the house through the chimney. What they think they'll find there I haven't a clue. They come in, buzz around and eventually die, falling to the floor.
One year we even had a beehive, complete with honeycomb and honey, between the floor and ceiling of our two story house. I didn’t care much for the bees then, although I hated the idea of having to exterminate them as we couldn’t get them out easily to relocate them.
We still get lots of bees around our house which I don’t mind because they pollinate our citrus trees, but to actually go near a beehive for a scavenger hunt? I don’t think so.
Good thing my sister, another member of our team, is more gutsy. She has a friend that has a hive and she took on the challenge to have her picture taken with the bees and their home.
Another item on the list is a unicycle. This one was less intimidating. My Sweet Pea, who is on our team, just happens to know someone who owns a unicycle. What are the odds of that? There are fewer and fewer people who ride or know how to ride a unicycle. It was interesting to watch him and quite an eye opener to My Sweet Pea to realize, after trying it out, that riding a unicycle is NOT easy.
