The Bee Hive

Sometimes it's honey; sometimes it's sting...

Each spring, I always have visions of making a photographic record of each and every wildflower blooming in our 'yard', complete with positive identification of the ones whose names I am not familiar with... but I never get it done. Some years I have used a sketchbook instead, but still only get a few pages done. This year is shaping up to be no exception. Mathieu and I took a few of my little dolls and started off by walking just on the east side of the house.
Leopard girl is wondering what kind of flowers these beautiful bright purple ones are. They are growing thickly all over this year.
Pink Fairy makes herself at home in the gorgeous Indian Paintbrushes. These are my favorites, I think.
This little Munchkin boy, from the Lillipop Guild is looking worried in these Showy False Dragonhead wildflowers. These are everywhere this year. As you drive along the highways, you can see them in pastures where they look like really large ponds. They really do resemble light blue water in such large groupings.

Peter Pan and Leopard Girl pause for a rest by this dandelion flower. The dandelions are seriously taking over everyone's yards this year.
Ugh and Crank always do things the hard way. They went straight to the prickly pear and agarita. No wonder they are always in such bad moods.

Very pretty scenes with the cute dolls. But, oh, that silly Crank and Ugh! Looking forward to Part 2.

Wonderful walk with the dollies! Wish our flowers were up and blooming!
How's everything with the new grand baby? I've been thinking of you.
