    Okay, this is the second time this week where I have been working in the garden, squatted down to do something, only to immediately jump up with, er, "colorful language," because apparently a sweat bee had been sitting on the back of my knee! Wouldn't be so bad (for me) except the sting itches like crazy! Guess I need to either wear pants or start putting antiperspirant on the back of my knees.

    Around here the sweat bees are above average in numbers this year for some reason. Was doing a little bush hoggoing Moday and got stung 5 or six times, sting and itch , itch, itch.

    I would suggest Hobie that it is always a good idea to be fully clothed when working in the garden :eek:... at least wearing pants

    Hey! There are advantages to not having any neighbors within viewing distance! Unless you count the resident flock of turkeys. :D :D

    Although I think Australia would be a wonderful place to live, I'm not sure I could deal with all your poisonous creatures. That has to be a challenge!

    Jack's so bored in this frigid weather that he's digging up all the archives!
