This evening after dinner Hubby Tony cut the grass, and I did the trimming around the edges. As usual, I was using a pair of hand grass clippers, which I much prefer to noisy weed eaters.
When I got to the perennial bed that runs down one side of the back yard, I wasn't paying attention as I squatted down to clip the patch of tall grass next to the coneflowers. All of a sudden a large bumblebee buzzed past just inches from my face. He didn't seem angry, just annoyed I'd disturbed his meal.
