The most welcoming scent is blowing across the prairie,

inviting Sophie and I to follow our noses in the direction it is coming from.
We walk down to the barbed wire fenced ranch land, and all along the fences,
these wild berry vines are in bloom.................


full of the sweet frangrance, color, and buzzing bees.

The bees are so busy collecting pollen that they take no time to notice me as I try to focus in on their busy darting here and there................one bee,
who is not so camera shy............is patient and very well
"beehaved"
(You can click on the photo for a better view.)

We have been fortunate enough to received a couple of days of good,
slow, soaking rain. The woods will soon be bursting forth with more blossoms and buzzing.
How about you?
What is blooming or buzzing around you?
I would love to hear!

Easter lilies, rose buds, azaleas, wildflowers and fruit tree blooms are just some of the spring beauty I'm seeing here in Louisiana! Love your photos!

I'm always so happy to see the bees, and I've got them back around the rosemary bushes. Those are the most interesting bushes you have there, what are they?

Your photos are just wonderful. Mother Nature is quite the master gardener...can't think of anything in our cultivated gardens that compare to the stunning colors in the wild berry vines.

Hi Kathleen! We've got bees everywhere, mosquitos and crane flies! Everything is blooming here, too! And thank the Lord, we've gotten over 4" of rain over the last few days!

Sweet bees... what kind of vine is that! Looks deadly...

Great photos, Kathleen! I don't believe I've ever seen that berry vine. It looks interesting. The bees sure seem to think so.

I have lots of peekers out of the soil such as peonies, hosta, daffidols, tulips, and my bleeding heart is about 4 inches high. I planted allmy cool weather seeds, lettuce, carrots, peas, etc. And I planted new bulbs last week, dalhias, glads, and cannas. I love spring!
