As the day cooled, we headed to the garden, where I discovered the early corn tasseling.
They didn't have far to fly back to their hive.
Of course, throughout my delightful romp in the corn with the bees I was accompanied by my helper. He provides lots of slobbery kisses, trampled flowers and chewed up toys. Time to play with his own puppy.
He had a visit with the Vet who pronounced him, "Practically perfect in every way." His only need is a big bone to help a tooth get through. A prescription he was thrilled to receive.
Let's see, how about a family check-up. Aunt Lois is doing well and is as brown as a berry from her mornings on the deck. Aunt SuZQ has finished her radiation treatments and seems more herself these past few visits. Mom doesn't have anything major going on at the moment, but isn't too interested in being too far from her chair. Rae and Michael are still waiting for the call of a new little one and have some serious decision making to do. I know they would appreciate prayers for direction. This adoption business is not for the faint hearted.
