    Ohhh..I can just feel green grass under my feet,and smell the air. That’s they way these creations epak to me. So pretty!
    I love the little bee,too. They’re the only bees I’m not afraid of,because they’re “furry and fat.”
    I could watch them for hours. LOL ;)

    Nancy, thank You! :)

    Bumble bees do not sting but, even though they do pollinate, they do not produce honey :( … I love honey! But, I am allergic to a regular bee and wasp stings…
