Walking through my garden today, I noticed the normal flurry of bugs flying past. But as I approached the end of my walk I realized that my garden was buzzing, literally!
My corn is about half as tall as I should be. But it still has tassels and small corn with silk. There are tons of honey bees on the tassels. So many that the garden is nosily buzzing with activity.
It's a pretty neat sound and I'm very glad to see so many bees enjoying the corn! Based on the scorching temperatures and lack of rain, I have a feeling that the bees might be the only ones who benefit from the crop.
That reminds me of a verse, "Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them." (Matthew 6:26)
I'd like to think that God is using me to insure that the bees get fed! :) I help the birds during the spring and the deer in the fall.
Gardening is one of the most popular hobbies in the U.S. I'm sure that has a lot to do with the peacefulness achieved out there in the garden alone. Of course, you're never really alone in the garden. There are always bugs scampering and bees buzzing. I'm thankful that the bees visited today! After all the destructive bugs I've encountered this season, I sure needed to see some friendly faces in my garden.
