Native Bees and other ramblings.
They spend much of their time on the perennial basil, but as you can see above they're also partial to the kids portaluca. For those who know the plant yes the bees are tiny compared to honeybees, and miniscule compared to bumblebees-about 4mm long.
AussieBee are a great resource and also sell hives.
AND..........i've just stumbled across what looks to be an good homeschooling blog, Camp Creek Blog. I've been mostly devouring Montessori resources lately so this is refreshing, and still my style.
It also seems i'm not the only one having a busyness hissy fit, it's a common theme-check out here and here. I'm feeling much better already, and think I understand deschooling perfectly now. I'm deworking myself. I've found myself slobbing around reading chicklit and lots of otherwise aimless stuff, but my mojo is beginning to show signs of reappearing. I have strictly shut myself up whenever i've started to berate myself for not jumping straight into all the personal projects I wanted to do, and just done whatever i've felt like. It's working!
But I did make this
A crocheted headband to celebrate getting my old 'do back again.
And I really need to stop rambling now-this was only supposed to be about the bees!
