  1. Isn't it amazing how deer can jump like they do? So graceful.
    I never knew honey bees were slowly losing their populace. I reckon cuz when I was young I had medical issues with the stingers. Not sure if I've outgrown it or not. I tend to keep my distance. Now that you've mentioned it, I haven't seen too many around lately. A lot of Bumble bees but no honey.

  10. The deer are graceful creatures. I just wish they would stay out of my garden. (grin) I will check out the honey bee link.

  11. We rarely see bees anymore, and not even very many butterflies. We have lots of bumble bees though.

    The deer jumping the fence makes me think of this: one got a leg caught in a panel fence and hung there until it died. I saw it that morning, moving, but thought it was a piece of plastic waving in the wind. Such a terrible way to go! We have a lot of deer that graze in our pastures.

  14. Lovely pics of the deer, Paula...
    I must send you some seeds of a plant that the bees love here.. It is called Poor Man's Orchid...
    Blessings..

  15. I was out for my morning walk the other day and I heard this rustle in the bushes at my side, and then thump..thump..thump and I turned to watch a big beautiful doe bounding across the field away from me...so glad I turned and looked! :D

  18. Love the jumping deer. Thanks for the information about the honeybees. I have eight lavender plants in our yard and they attract bees but I have only seen one that looks like a honey bee. The rest are either Carpenter bees or Bumble bees. I want to attract them so having a place to tell me how is perfect. Thanks for caring and sharing.

  19. Great pictures of the deer!
    Bee's are so important & honey so good for us (the only food that never spoils) We have bee hives on our place & get honey from the bee keepers every year.

  20. Deer are amazing, and I can see why it is so hard for farmers and gardeners to keep the deer from consuming their produce when you consider just how high and extensive a fence has to be to protect it.Beautiful photos.

    Now how did my husband not hear about the Bee-a-thin I wonder. Anyway, I am happy to report his hives are doing well thus far, hopefully we'll have a good honey harvest.
