We have a magnificent lilac bush in our yard. When it's in bloom , the whole area smells wonderful!
I went out to cut some lilacs yesterday evening. I got a few cut when I heard a loud buzzing in the air around me. Oh great, bumble bees! I am deathly afraid of all bugs (and snakes, mice, etc.). They started flying at me. I ran for my dear life! Shaking the lilacs at them to keep them from landing on me. I'm sure the neighbors thought that I had finally lost my ever loving mind! LOL When RIchard came home I told him of my near death escapade! He laughed and went out to see if I was exaggerating! He was brave enough to snap a couple of pics, that is until they started flying at him. If I looked anywhere near as funny as he did, running from those bees, I looked ridiculous!!! LOL Remember to click on the pictures, if you want to see the culprits a little closer!
