Clematis and the Bee

Clematis Orientalis with bee 3_with frame

I spotted this bee in the Clematis Orientalis today.  This clematis is a very vigourous grower.  It has formed a large vine on the arbour by the deck and is now just loaded with bloom.  I was just attempting to take a macro shot of the flower when along came the bee. I shot away until I got a good capture.  

I will be joining Laura at Blogging from Bolivia for Macro Friday.   This is the labor day weekend for us in Canada. The children will be going back to school on Tuesday.  Fall is fast approaching.   Enjoy the end of summer holidays. Valerie

Hi Val
Great macro of the bee and I like the frame around it.

First Birthday

Yesterday my husband and I attended our granddaughters first birthday party.  The house was alive with little ones having a fun time of running through the house.  Kenzi wanted to join it but they kept knocking her down as they sped past her.  She is a trouper though.  No tears as she got back up and tried to go with the flow again. The hitch came when she was to participate in the smash the cake ritual that all of my daughter-in-laws family do at the first birthday.  Her maternal grandmother had made the smash cake and Kenzi was supposed to get down into it with both hands and get covered in cake.   Kenzi was having no part in it.  She cried as her hand was pushed into the cake.   Oh well maybe next year.  It was lovely to see all the little babies born at the same time as Kenzi and how sweet they all were.  Kenzi’s cake was an Elmo cake.  He is her favourite character.  I am joining Mary for Mosaic Monday.  I can feel spring in the air even though we have quite a bit of snow left bu…
