I power washed one of our decks yesterday (in the rain, of course!) and today I began painting the railing & spindles. It's quite a job but is is looking much better. Tomorrow, I promised to help a friend with her landscaping. I have potted up about 20 plants that I will donate to the effort. Hope it comes out well. Hope our backs last too! BTW @Sjoerd that is some wheel of wax!! I have never seen anything like it. I enjoy hearing about how you tend to those bees of yours. @Jewell I don't have any honey bees left either (our neighbor gave up her hives), but we do have tons of bumblebees (don't know what kind), and we have Mason bees too. I put out one of those mason bee homes 3 years ago. Nada until this year!! Lots of holes have been plugged up! Very exciting. So what kind of bumblebees do you have & how did you identify them?
