This and That!

We have really been enjoying our bananas which started full and green and now look pretty bleak! Sorry the photos are so dark!  Can you believe we ate almost all of them?   Some days we had 4 or 5 so it's a good thing they are only about 5 or 6" long!  They may not be big in size but  they are huge on flavor!!   

As you can see here, we have another bunch ready for picking.  Have fun Honey!  I'll be missing out on this bunch as I'll be in Denver talking care of our new granddaughter, Madeline!


With thoughts of you Phyllis, Don took about 30 photos of this neighborhood rooster so.... if one of these poses doesn't quite work, just let us know!  Happy painting everyone,  Don misses you all!

Although this rooster is quite handsome, he's a real pain in the ass at 4:30 a.m.!

By the way, we've named the Rooster "Craig" and his favorite hen "Beth"!

While picking oranges one afternoon we came across this incredible swarm of bees!  It was a total mass of buzzing bees and had disappeared by the next day!   Hummmm...wonder where they all went?  Hopefully preparing to pollinate our coffee!

We had a swarm like that in our backyard once. It's a transitional hive. They are relocating the queen. Cool, huh! Happy farming :). Can't wait to see you in June!
