It was a perfect day today. Not too hot, just hovered around seventy degrees. I even sat outside on the deck in the sun with my shirt off. Felt real good. It was a good day to be alive.
The wild berry vines are in bloom. I noticed something today that I have not noticed before. The thorns on these were all pointing backwards from the direction of growth. That is the reason that they hurt so much if you grab hold of them with your bare hand and try to pull them out. Mother Nature always amazes me at her designs and the ways she uses to protect her "garden". These vines were also in bloom with large white flowers and the bees were working them. I was glad to see bees. They seem to be getting sparse around here and they are so very important to the pollenization of all plants, wild and domestic. Without bees, a lot of life on this Earth would disappear, a lot of us included.
