What’s the Real Story?

16 May

Bees and PenstemonMy person tried to tell me yesterday that we couldn’t go in my wash because of some invisible things. I didn’t believe her. I think she was just making excuses for not going in my wash.

But I just remembered something. The day before when we were in the wash, we walked past my red flowers like we usually do. These flowers like to hang out in my wash. I’ve never seen them leave it. There are a few that creep up to the edge of the wash, but they don’t get out.

Normally these flowers are very quiet. They don’t even move much, unless there’s a breeze. But this last time we walked by they were very noisy. They were making a buzzing sound.

And there was movement all through those flowers. It almost looked like the flowers were jumping off their stems so they could visit each other, but none of the visitor flowers were red like the others.

When I looked closer I realized that all of those visitors were bees. The flowers were full of bees. Where did they all come from? They’d never been around before.

But before Detective Dog shows his hat on the question of bees, I’m still working on those invisible things my person told me about yesterday.

Now I think she made up that “no see ‘em” story because she didn’t want to bother the bees. I’m not buying it. She’s going to have to come up with a better story.

    Better stay away from all those bees! I usually run away from them, but unfortunately Nala loves the thrill of the chase and keeps playing with them… Never been stung and don’t want to! 🙂

      Nala, bees aren’t very exciting to me so I leave them alone. My person says that’s a good thing. Those bees only cared about those flowers anyway.

    Bongo, you’d best avoid the bees. My friend, Marshall ate a mouthful of them once and his head swelled up like a freaky monster hot air balloon. NOT pretty. I’m going with – your person knows best on this one.

    Love and licks,

      Cupcake, it sounds like bees can be really scary. I’ll be sure to stay away from them. I hope they don’t hurt those flowers.

    Bees can be dangerous for dogs and people Bongo. They sometimes get angry and attack in a swarm. Keep away!

      Bassa, I guess it’s a good thing my person hasn’t taken me back by those flowers. That’s the only place I’ve seen a bunch of bees.

    A sting on the nose, or on your rear would not be very nice. It would hurt! A LOT! so stay away

      Marina, you and me both. I wish my person would just get her story straight.

      Angels Whisper, I guess I’ll have to take the other path through the wash. It doesn’t have bees on it.

    Oh no Bongo! Please be careful! I’m not sure how big they were but we sometimes see hornet or wasp around neighborhood and they’re sooo scary!!! Besides they make their nests nearby! We know that some of the bees are harmless but you need to stay out from them as they get angry easily!

      Kevin, my person says were nice bees than hornets or wasps, but she says they can still sting and I’b better be careful. I guess I’ll walk lightly around them.

    Although the bees are very beneficial for the flowers and to make honey, I think I would skip the wash when the bees are there. I am allergic to them and swell up badly and L & M like to bite at them and I am always afraid they are going to be stung.

      Lexie and Mica, I just ignored the bees – but if there was a bunny on the loose I’d be after it in a minute.

    Hi Bongo! Be careful with those bees! Of course you may be like Branwen, she eats them… LOL… we try to discourage her but she will snap them and eat them.. Of course she is such a strong willed girl she would never admit they stung her… LOL Be careful Bongo those bees hurt! Giger says do not try to leave them messages for you dont want to get stung doing that… 🙂

      Collies, if Ginger doesn’t do it then I guess I’d better not either. Maybe I’ll leave them for the javelinas. If they can eat prickly pears with the pricklers still on, then maybe bees wouldn’t bother them very much.

      Bassetmomma, there are so many mysteries on my trails that sometimes I think I should wear my detective hat every time I go out there.
