Alfred, Lord Tennyson, 1851
He clasps the crag with crooked hands;
Close to the sun in lonely lands,
Ring'd with the azure world, he stands.
The wrinkled sea beneath him crawls;
He watches from his mountain walls,
And like a thunderbolt he falls."

Have to share with you that I found out a little more about our swarm yesterday. Hubby told me when he took the picture and video, he reached out and grabbed a bee by the wing and tugged gently. An entire line of bees about 3 feet long were hanging onto each other! Those ones fell to the ground then flew back to join the ball. And that was just one small part of the swarm. AMAZING!
We are big believers in an artistic garden. We also applaud those who think outside the box. And, we believe that beauty is in the eye of the beholder. For example, my MIL has a garden that belongs on the cover of House Beautiful. It is PERFECT. Of course, she has a slew of gardeners to keep it that way. We, on the other hand, are big fans of the natural garden. Where, around every corner, who knows what you may find? We try to incorporate a lot of recycled art, out-of-the-box thinking and let God take care of the rest. We are definitely NOT perfect. And, we like it that way!
Thought I would share with you what we did today. We have white rock on most of our pathways and walkways, but the newer ones we put in last year are just plain dirt and we wanted to enhance that somewhat inexpensively. Rock is expensive, as is bark, and pavers.
Here are two pictures of how we found a solution, for under $20! We think it turned out really nice, and plan to add to it as funds allow.
