To Bee Or Not To Bee

 

We were in a nearby town in front of a local strip mall, and bee things and places seemed to be everywhere! They had a drive-thru coffee shop "The Queen Bean".



The florist was "Honey Bee's".


The U.P.S. drop off box was even bee colored!


And the local bus was bee colored.


We came home to find that our next door neighbor had hung out a bee flag.

I love that first Bee and this is really a cute town. Our bees are gone from our yard and that is very scary. our tow powder puff bushes we call the bee trees, none, they have disapeared. the bees are happy

Ann said...

Well that just couldn't BEE more cute. I never thought of that when I had a bee land on me, I always got scared.

The first bee is cute. I have visited a bee farm once. I am glad no bee choose to land on me.

The bee is such an important insect and how fun you found a place dedicated to them. No, no bee has ever mistaken me for a flower, even though the surname I was born with, Blomkvist, means twig of flowers.

Another fun place, and post!!!

Love both the quotes. One so sweet, and the other, so wise. We really need to take the last one, to heart.

You know we would die without bees - I think that is true - although our dog got stung with one last week!

Yes, a bee landed on me at school when I was young, and I got stung from it. Had an allergic reaction to it, but thankfully my Mom knew what to do and the swelling went down. The town filled with bee stuff is charming, and I like your neighbor's cheerful flag. I'd love to drive through that coffee shop too. Flowers are pretty, but don't you think they're even prettier with a bee landing on it? What a sweet post this is.

One year we had this little bumble-bee that hung around our front door for about 2 weeks of the summer. Wee sat our on the front step one afternoon during a thunderstorm and that little bumble-bee just buzzed around us the whole time.

This is so fun! Bee's are very important.

Seems like a lot of bee stuff. I have been stung but only once

Veronica Lee said...

I've been stung a couple of times so I will probably freak out if a bee lands on me again!

Happy Wednesday!

You asked if the crepe myrtle was mine. Nope, I spotted them growing on a sidewalk.

I love that first quote!!!
Has a bee ever landed on you, and instead of getting scared, you appreciated the possibility that you got confused for a flower.

Bees are important to us. I love them. But we get the yellow jackets and those are evil doers.

Be Happy, should be everyone's motto. Tough times requires more smile. :-)

I love your bee theme photos. I love bees and fortunately I have never been stung by one. And even more fortunate not to be allergic to them like someone I knew. Great quotes and the last one is very thought provoking.

Well I'll bee! That's interesting. xoxo
