I am back after a few days away and a self imposed break from the blog. It is hot and dry where I live and a long hot summer looks to lie ahead.
If I am to have any vegetables from my garden I will have to nurse it along with a watering regimen. Already I see there will b no apples on my trees just as there were no sour cherries. Spring played a wicked trick by starting and pausing to let a very cold snap sweep in and freeze the buds and blossoms just a s they appeared.
"Hundreds of millions of honeybees have vanished in 22 US states, leaving keepers financially crippled and jeopardising £8 billion [or $16 billion] of crops that needed insects for pollination" (The Times, Feb. 19, 2007).
