A Bee On An Overcast Day

I have been digging the wonderful sunshine since it finally showed up around here but today it took a half day off. I was hoping to get home and take pics of the bees in the apple tree. Seems they took off half the day as well…..the half I wanted to take pictures of them during! Oh well, this fellow decide to buck the trend and showed up for an evening fill up overcast or not. Enjoy!

Grandfather Apple, A Violet Plus A Random Photo

Today, after a very lazy start, me and The Bride went on a leisurely walk around the place. After finding the areas I had cleaned out paths last year still very passable we went down to the creek. The violet pictured is about ten feet down the bank right above the creek.It was such a stark contrast to the sandy bank and bleak brown creek bottom I had to take the shot.

The apple blossom is from a very old apple tree The Bride has named Grandfather Apple. It has bloomed early like every thing else around here and adds flavor to the emerging colors and smells of an early spring.

The last photo is of a wooden pallet outside of the loading dock at work. I see the pallet as thus so I am not sure what that says about me.
