Homestead Happy Snaps

We mustn’t let the tyrants and clowns get us down
Joy and laughter can still abound
Mantras and cliches can spout the latest crazes
But it’s Nature that always amazes!

Praying Mantis living on Wandering Jew, seems somehow apropos, no? He really does live there and he’s pretty good company. 🙂
I’ve heard of bats in the belfry, but in the umbrella?!
How about a cuteness contest—goats or sheep? I know my opinion! Share yours below?
It’s very zen to watch the bees, I find. Next time I’ll figure out how to add sound—I love that soothing buzz of what appears to be such well-ordered chaos—Such miracles in nature!

  1. They are creating a “scent gate” essentially. They spread the hive pheromones at the entrance so any robber bees or other intruders will not pass the sniff test for entry. There could be hygienic purpose too, or multiple other reasons, much about bee behavior is still a mystery. 🙂

  2. I was watching your bees & wondered what several were doing to the front of their landing ledge. Are they cleaning it? They almost look like little vacuum cleaners.

  3. For sheer entertainment goats win hands down. Some of the funniest videos I’ve stumbled across quite by accident have been of goats. They seem super intelligent & seem to be masters of escapism.
