Since it was 18 or 19C today here, with a light breeze, Dr Desert Flower and I did yoga together for the first time poolside this afternoon. It was wonderful, except for the 1/2 dozen honey bees who seemed inexorably drawn to the yellow sheet I'd laid down to keep dust & dirt off the yoga mats. We figured out it was the yellow sheet when we finished yoga, and moved to the patio to enjoy a lunch of Stilton, Brie, Hummus, dried apricots, organic feta, organic baby carrots, and a bubbly Vinho Verde Espiral, I laid the yellow sheet over the dusty patio chair on which I sat, and I instantly became a popular bee magnet. We moved inside, abandoning the patio, and watched through the screen as a dozen or more honey bees thoroughly investigated the sheet.
Where's a good bee eater when you need one?
