The return of wild bees

September 26, 2012 § Leave a comment

I spent some of my time on Minneapolis at the end of September , feeding what might be wild bees, coke, and sugar water to the dismay of neighbors who had to pass the small swarm on their way in and out of their apartment next door. As far as I was concern the survival of the bees was more important than their comfort.

A Bend In the Road

September 3, 2012 § 1 Comment

This is a road in Riverdale New York. Riverdale is just out side the city of Manhattan. It is a short train ride from Grand Central Station. The river in question is the “Lordly Hudson”.  What’s there you might ask.  The himes of the wealthy for the most part and an estate turned museum and gardens called Wave Hill. Wave Hill is a lovely place to spend an afternoon. It has many gardens and very nice exhibits about plant life in particular and nature in general. I have help out  in the past when a group of beekeepers were harvesting honey from several of the Museum’s  hives. That was fun!

This image of the road however reminds me of another, similar road in my past.  One that I have been haunted by .  It was in a county in Virginia called King and Queen. I had bike there from My county (King William) my birth place. It was late afternoon and I had gone along ways but I was tempted to push on farther. I had stopped in a place that looked very much like this. After a long thought, I turned back.  I have,  since then, often been haunted by the fact that I did not see what was beyond that bend in the road.

Where Am I?
