Lovely Marmee....a post close to my heart....beautiful bee.....and I can see the photograph was taken with sensitivity....that is a rare thing.....

The bees are slowly disappearing here as the weather gets colder....I shall miss them.....

Hi Marmee, I'm seeing lots of bumblebees but no honey bees. How about you?

marmee said...

yes, marnie, just bumblebees, but i have a song in my head about "honey honey food for the bees" by a group called fiest.

Mary said...

Marmee, I'm so delighted to meet you! Is there anything better than wandering around your garden and taking pictures of the little things that often go unnoticed? I love your bumble and its lacey wings.

That looks like a 63 or 64 Ford Fairlane. And my! what a quint little town. One almost expects to see Andy and Barney come around the corner and get in that cop car.

marmee said...

i know what you mean tc. the orange car is the general lee from the dukes of hazzard. i just realized i didn't post that picture but i will when i do the one about the land surrounding us.

Looks like a beautiful place to live. My husband's job has moved to Spring City, Tennessee. We live in New Market, Tennessee, which is also small, but nothing like Spring City. I normally go to stay with him 2 nights a week. We are finding out Spring City is a neat place to be. Still don't know what we are going to do.
