Siberian Squil and Spring Beauties are some of the tiniest blossoms in our little gardens in the shade.
Above are Siberian Squil.
One of my friends who is a beekeeper said that she found it fascinating to see the bees with purple pollen sacs. (View further down)
Melanie said that you usually see white, yellow and green pollen sacs.
Sadly my Italian Bee colony either did not survive the cold of Winter, or they moved before it got too cold, but at least I saw this one bee and that means there are others nearby.
The male Eastern Bluebird below was photographed on my favorite ride, that many followers have heard me speak of often, yet alas, may not be hearing so much about in future posts.
Some may remember that while traveling Covered Bridge Road last Mother's Day, a car coming toward me in my lane, hit me head on and caused over $4,000 damage and left me with a rental for 5 weeks.
This past Wednesday, the husby, myself and the 2 dogs were en route up Covered Bridge Road and minding our own business.
It is an absolutely gorgeous country drive, but the road takes many curves and can be dangerous.
We were on a straight stretch of road, not very busy, due to it being Spring vacation break, when out of nowhere a brand new red Dodge was coming approximately 55mph...the speed limit in our lane.
This time, there was no place to get out of the way.
The husby, a former police officer, with excellent defensive driving skills, decided to make a quick stop, bracing for possible impact.
It was one of the most frightening things that we have ever faced together!
It was like one of the kids video games, when just before the blast of impact, the vehicle suddenly swerves out of harms way.
That was our only blessing, that the driver finally got smart, only by a hair though.
The 12 week old puppy was asleep in the back, and may have hit the back of the husby's seat, because she was screaming!
We rushed her to the Veterinarian, and she said, that Silvie may have hit her chest, but seemed more frightened than hurt.
We brought her home and she cried off an on until she went to bed Wednesday evening.
Needless to say, we feel very blessed, for it could have been a very, very bad accident.
We never got the plate number of the driver, for they knew they messed up and they were out of sight, as soon as they realized what they had nearly caused.
One never knows what may come in any given day, but we need to always be ready for whatever happens and pray for the best outcome~
