The word around town is that the bee swarms are happening and a farmer nearby has already caught one. This sent a little bit of a panic through me, and I got to painting and setting up a few more bait boxes. We are expected to have a really warm week, so I feel like I need to get them out and ready as soon as possible. Maybe put a little neon vacancy sign on them. I am really hoping that all the bee attracting plants I had planted this season, and the sounds of the water will call to them. Last year I saw a swarm in the gutter down the street, so my garden should be a little more inviting. I did get the sign of approval when a humming bird stopped by and took a few sips from my fountain. I was so excited. VALIDATION!
