Living alongside nature
This one in particular has given us a multitude of flowers. As well as the flowers giving us pleasure we always delight when we see bumble bees doing their business in and around the plants.
Yesterday I went to cut away the spent flowers and when I had finished the dahlia bush I also spent some time on the plants behind.
I had just completed and was stepping out of the garden area when I felt a sharp stinging sensation above the inside of my right ankle.
He must have been in search of a flower but got caught between my socks and trouser leg and so gave me a sharp jab.
Linda administered some first aid and it was okay but an itchy sensation stayed with me for the rest of the day.
There is still some itchiness today but better than it was. I will survive and I am glad it was not a spider bite.
I can't be mad at the bee, they do such a wonderful job for us in the whole scheme of things.
