We love cows. We love bee skeps. But...

Sorry it took a while to get these photos loaded. Thanks to Mary McCallester, we have our beloved cow next to a tidy little bee skep atop a large pasture. Problem is, those bees decided to make our homes their homes a week or so back! Pesky critters set up shop in the wall between the outside slump block and the drywall at Maegan's house and in the block wall of Vickie's house. We sure prefer they stay tucked inside their official skeps or hives. Not sure why we're having so many bee visits this spring in Arizona, but we surmise they're enjoying the blooming Palo Verde trees and miscellanrous cacti that are sporting their springtime splendor.
