It’s getting warm here in northwest Arizona, which is typical this time of year. Often, we’re stuck inside as the sun is too hot to hang outside for very long. Time for a nice cold brew!
Meanwhile, here’s something for your summertime sipping pleasure:
Small towns saved by legal marijuana (but what happens when it’s legal everywhere?)
The bee saga continues at home. Luckily, the beekeeper will be here on Monday morning, so we can walk a little easier outside.
What started as just a few bees quickly morphed into a dark group of thousands of bees at the top of our front porch. During the day, the bees are still active in the porch, but also a large “clump” of bees has taken up residence on the ground at the edge of the porch below a Juniper tree. It’s a first for us…
We also had a recent visit from seven javalina. Below are some links of interest. Enjoy! Have a great weekend…
