We are being overrun with bugs lately!!!
Here's one of those big Bumble Bees taking over Wiggy's Sage. He's kinda hard to see in the pic, but Wiggy sure can't go out there and roll around in his Sage now.
Mum planted some Sedum right near our patio entrance. She is so sorry she did that, since the Sedum is overrun by bees this time of year. She's gonna move it soon.
I remember when I was just a year old, I came in from outside one day and Mum noticed a little bump on my nose. She pushed on it and it didn't hurt, and I was breathing normally so she wasn't too worried.
She went upstairs to fold some laundry, came back down about 15 minutes later and my nose was the size of a golf ball. Boy did she panick!!! She pretty much instantly knew it was a bee sting, so she put a little Traumeel on the bump, then watched me closely all night to make sure I was breathing OK. By morning, I was just fine.
But she went out the next morning to the store for some of that capsule liquid Benedryl, just in case I got bit again. 'Cause if it woulda been on my tongue, I woulda been in big trouble!
And of course, Gracie loves to snap at 'em with her big chompers. Scares Mum to death! There are so many, we may have to check out one of those cross country moving companies and get the heck outta here. Yikes!
Then the other day we found this cute little baby Praying Mantis trying to get in our house. Love how those little bugs change colors depending upon what surface they are on at the time. Just a few hours later we found his Mama on our shurb enjoying a nice bee for lunch. Wonder if they taste good?
Then, we went out for our morning potty the other day and guess who's taken over our empty pool? Yep, a big ole spider!!! He stayed for three days, but he's off on other adventures now.
And one of those bees tried running my dogwalk. Guess his running contact took a lot out of him, because it doesn't look he lived through it, even though he hit the contact! Good Bee!
