It’s a beautiful morning… The sun is just coming up…                 There’s still a mist rising up and a haze settling in…     It’s a Florida summer, so there’s moisture dripping from every opportunity…   It’s still not intolerably hot out there…….but you know it will to be shortly…   I love when the assortment of birds wake up and get going with their daily business……….they fly here or there……….all having their…

Grumpy Bees

Grumpy Bees

      Did you know that honey bees get grumpy on cloudy days? And don’t plan on opening their hive when it’s raining…….it would be rude and they would make sure you regretted it. I’m getting into stride with my regular hive-care. Our rainy season is here in sub-tropical Florida. I had forgotten about the “grumpy-bee syndrome”……………..but they enthusiastically reminded me of it. They are happy bees when it is sunny (not too windy)-(no rain)-(no clouds)………………like I said, sunny……….

‘Tis The Season

‘Tis The Season

Where has the time gone!??! Where are my regular postings!?! Get a grip, woman!!! Don’t pay attention to your failing marks from the Cyber-Posting-Academia people in the sky/cloud/thingie (not to be confused with my cloud-friend Pascal). You readers out there…………………(I see you in Japan)………………….don’t give up on me. There’s sooooooooooo much to do……… At least the Halloween decorations have been taken down (well most of them anyway)………… More later…………….        

It’s Autumn Now……..

It’s Autumn Now……..

  The Autumnal Equinox has just happened.   Equal daylight to equal nighttime.   We’re coming up to a cooler time of the year……………….but it’s not here yet. The weather is in no way cooler…………for sure. Not one iota. It’s still super hot. I looked into a water tank at Mary Constance’s and there was a teeming batch of tadpoles…………….big ones……………..already sprouting hind legs. Mary Constance does live close to Bullfrog Creek. Earlier this week it got up to 96…

September’s Here!

September’s Here!

  Autumn is just around the corner. That’s what the pretty pictures on the calendar show. I’m glued to the Wunderground Weather site on the computer. So far there’s TD6 (Tropical Depression) that I’m watching. It’s fairly quiet off the west coast of Africa, so far, but………………..ssssshhhhhhhhhh… It can all head south so fast when you’re not watching… Oh wait………………….now there’s TS (Tropical Storm) Gordon churning up the Gulf right now…………………..how does that happen so fast!?! Where was Gordo yesterday?…

Summer Mud

Summer Mud

  It’s August 1st! Hunt Season begins next month!   The air is steamy and wet……………it’s like you are living in an over-heated aquarium……looking through a distorted world of wavy, thick moisture.   I’ve got moss on my northern side again. It happens every summer. I’d better keep moving or some opportunistic vine will take me down.   I had to rescue a little volunteer magnolia tree seedling who I found in the back yard.  There was a weed-vine wrapped…
