The Too Busy Bees Office Christmas Party

We are having just unbelievable weather for the end of December. It's 60 degrees today! Rained this morning, but sunny now.

Any time it's over 50 degrees or so, bees will come out of their hives and look around for something to snack on. They also do some some house cleaning too, but we aren't going to talk about that...because that's what I should be doing.

I'd much rather buzz around looking for a snack ;-).

I've been keeping a jar of honey (someone else's, not ours ;-) sitting by the back door. When it gets warm - as it has quite a bit this month - I like to drizzle some along the porch railing and see who shows up.

Honey bees, flies and look at that sporty little bee.

Look at her slurping it up. That's a pretty cool Christmas gift. And I think she's pretty happy about it too! ;-)

But maybe not with her fellow office workers. Must be the accounting department.

"Ai! Get away from my honey!"

Everyone bellying up to the bar for a little holiday cheer.

I knew bees would drink sugar water, but I didn't know they would go for the 'final product,' especially if it was made by someone else. No different than us going to a restaurant though, I guess.

Looks like everyone was enjoying the party. Makes them bee- lieve in the most wonderful time of the year!

Well now I'm jealous....I want 60 degrees so my girls can come out and play, eat, and poo.
