Hot Pink Honeysuckle

I went for a fifty-mile bicycle ride today. The weather was hot and humid and it was like riding through a mixture of steam and honeysuckle. Not that I'm complaining.

There are mountains of honeysuckle growing beside the trail.

Some of the honeysuckle is pink. I've never seen that before.

I saw a groundhog. Just a little one.

On the way home, milepost one is where the beehives are. It looks like the beekeeper has remodeled her hives.

Because of the bee fungus that is killing honey bees, many beekeepers are remodeling hives to make them more theft-resistant, even adding GPS (is that "bee jack") to the hives.

Bee-stealers? What's te world coming to?

I was sad when my parents moved to Suburbia and Mom was told she couldn't keep her beehive. Nothing like good fresh honey!
