Bee Still ...

I was taking some pictures of blackberry blossoms when I saw this yellow jacket sitting quietly on a dead branch. So I snapped his picture. When I enlarged it, I realized I must have woken him up - he appears to be rubbing his eyes! Normally I hate yellow jackets, but this little fellow was just too cute!

On a personal note, my dad and mom were in a severe car accident yesterday. They were heading back from my sister's house and their car somehow left the freeway and flipped multiple times. Dad has a fractured vertebra in his neck (sounds much better than "he broke his neck"), and had to undergo hours of surgery to put his scalp back on. He will be in for a long recovery, but as I said in my other blog, the wonderful part is he WILL be in for a long recovery. God willing.


  1. I read about the accident on Beth's blog. I am keeping you all in my prayers.

  2. So beautiful to my eyes, Sissy--and Lois, thank you thank you for your prayers.

  3. Clytie,
    I am so sorry to hear of your parents accident
    - just so awful. Please know I am thinking of you & Beth and keeping all of you in my prayers.
    Sending my friendship hugs to both of you .
