I've been off the grid for some time as my partner had major surgery over two weeks ago. It's been a very stressful time to say the least. We had to go to the city for the surgery and fortunately I stayed at my daughters house there and she came out here for that time to take care of our cats and chickens. I'm not going to go into a long song and dance about it all only to say that the bottom lobe of the left lung was removed, the surgeon said it looked like cancer but that the area around it looked clean. We won't know the results of it until himself sees the surgeon again in a months time. We are hoping for the best.
I'm finally relaxing some and found that the last few days puttering around the garden has been a kind of healing for me. The weather has been quite good and yesterday afternoon I finally picked up the camera and got some shots of one of my favorite subjects, the Bumble Bee.
The bee balm has done me proud this summer. I have it in various parts of the garden.
