A question of bees...





Too busy with Mother's Day (and work, always) for a proper post this week. I do apologize if you're disturbed by scary pictures but take a look at what I found under one of the lemon trees this morning! Of all our fruit trees (orange, apple, cherry and lemon), lemon is most popular with bees and this particular little tree has been vibrating with all sorts of bees this week. I think it's probably hard for you to tell but this bee is nothing like our little honey bees. It's even a bit bigger than the big black carpenter bees we usually find buzzing around and around that tree. It's a giant lion-like bee covered in what appears to be golden fur! I'm actually wondering, could it be an Africanized bee?? If you happen to know, please comment. Otherwise I'll be back next week with more vintage perfume talk...
 
The Vintage Perfume Vault, where the scent of yesterday's vogue lives.

Oh, no...I pop in...and you *might* have an Africanized bee on your page??? ;)

Afraid I can't help you with with identification of this particular bee. But lemon is most popular, eh?

ScentSelf- I know, I know... and that's only one of the horrors I've discovered in my new mania for the garden. But yes, the lemon blossoms stole the show. Great to hear from you, btw:)

Like the fact it favours lemons x

Me, too- he's got very good taste! Found out he's a male carpenter bee (doesn't look a thing like the female!).
