(176:  Honey bee on bok choy flowers.)

The weather here in the Bogs has been amazing.  I’ve probably already said that a few times over the past week.  And it’s true.  Amazing.  Simply amazing.  This has not been November weather at all.  No snow.  Very little rain.  Mostly sunny, mostly clear, most of the time.  M and I both said a thank you to the sun for hanging around over the past four days.

While working in the garden yesterday I noticed some yellow flowers.  They turned out to be bok choy plants that I was too lazy busy to pull once they bolted.  There was a honey bee hanging out on one of the plants, enjoying the flowers.

It’s going to be unseasonably warm again today, but with a cloud cover.  There is a weak cold front moving through, bringing mostly clouds and little rain.  We could probably use a bit of rain although it would be good to see the pond levels continue to go down.  We have decided not to try a drawdown (first mentioned here).  We would have to run a pump constantly for 6-8 days to bring the pond down enough to kill the weeds at the edges.  That doesn’t take into account the inevitable clogging of the pump which would set us back at least a few hours each time it happened.  So, if the pond should naturally do a drawdown due to evaporation and a lack of rain, that would be a good thing.

    It’s been quite nice in North Texas as well. Your photo is just delightfully bright and cheers me up!

    I’m sure the bee appreciated that you hadn’t chopped down the choy plants and my, what a really nice capture of the busy bee! The weather had been very nice here and warm in the middle of Kansas. Today it is rainy and cold. 🙂

    the wing detail of that bee is scrumptious! 🙂

    November weather here is unseasonal too, and we don’t like it
    hot already, with temps over 30 (celsius) for the past two weeks
    Summer hasn’t even started yet . . .

    I think November and October got their weather assignments mixed up! 🙂
