I'm a bit Bee-hind...

Bee-lieve me, I have been thinking of all of you, my blogging friends!


My posts have been few-and-far-between, bee-cause I'm a bit bee-hind!



I just want to say that this weekend was bee-u-tiful! We worked some more in our back yard and my next post will show you some of the changes we've made over the past couple of months!



See you soon!

--Today I am thankful for bee-utiful blogging friends;-)

  1. There is something about bees that I find very uplifting. It's always good to see them. The violas are pretty too!

  2. Hi Jan, What a cute post. I tell you it seems all I do is be bee-hind too:) Spring, school, life changes, well you know, it catches up to us. Hang in there and do what you need to do. The beauty of blogging is that it is always there when we can get to it. I'm about to take a break myself! Take care and I do hope your Mother's Day was fantastic.

  18. The bees were out this chilly morning just after 6am. Like you, I can't seem to get caught up. I'm beginning to think it's a permanent condition.

  22. Hi Jan,
    We have three gardens. Front is flowers. Back is fruit trees and veggies. The side is a 30ft waterfall/creek/garden. I wish you could see it. Great Bee hind. LOL

    Vacation in July is the Butchart Gardens in Victoria, BC.

  23. Jan -- cute word play! I'm behind, too since we've been on vacation for the last week and my blog was on auto-pilot.

    I'm trying to catch up on blogs, but I need to catch up on sleep so that I can actually see the photos and read the words! LOL

  27. Hi Jan,
    Your photo here is lovely; it's great to see bees doing their important work in your garden. And I think the boulder you added to the garden works perfectly. Cheers!

  28. I love Bees. Always hard at work while I'm relaxing in the garden. It doesn't seem fair.
    I just try and put in their favourite plants.

  29. No one can do it all. Enjoy your garden. Pretty sweet pics.

  30. I am certainly bee-hind in blogging, too, Jan. It's that time of year; I think we can all relate:) I just read your adventure about your new boulder. I hope your truck survived without any major problems!:) I think it looks great where it landed, though, and provides a lovely focal point for your rock garden.

  32. Well Jan, I hope you have bee-having yourself.

  33. Great photos!

    My cat's name is Balder. It's the name of a kind God in the old Norse religion. My daugther named our cat when she was studying old norwegian culture in University.
    "Medhjelparen min" is the same as "my assistant" or "my helper".

  35. I think every gardener and wildlife lover understands that this is a busy busy time of year. Hope you're enjoying yourself in the garden and elsewhere, and I think the viola/bee picture is a nice treat to keep us all until you have time for more posts.

  36. Looking forward to seeing what's been keeping you as busy as a bee! ;-)

  37. Hi Jan. No worries on being "bee hind!" We all understand. It's SO hard to blog when there is so much going on yet it's the time of year when there's so much to blog about! I look forward to seeing what you've been up to too and great photos.
    Oh, I love your new blog header too!

    Best regards
