Poppy Day: Happy Birthday Ben!


Four Poppies in bloom with more buds to open later today!
As Grinny always said, "The poppies always on Ben's Birthday, so these are what I call the Ben Flower."

I love Purple Flowers in May

Love how the blooms are really in full majesty!


Early May... not as pretty...

Capturing a Honey Bee Swarm



Keith got the bees out of a really tall tree in our backyard.

Here's some photos from the swarm of honeybees that escaped from one of the hives last week and a post of a swarm from two years ago. Seems like the bees like to swarm from the beehives in late May or early June.

Donzell's Garden Center in Akron Ohio

Donzell's does a great job with their displays and spring is no except. Its great to drive into their place and see all these friendly pansy faces greeting you!!
I love their pansy display as you drive into their Akron location on Waterlou near Arlinton Road.
