The rhodies are still hanging in there, doused by a rainshower. And the bees are still hanging around in droves to forage. Sometimes I get a little carried away getting too up close and personal, but no stings yet. You couldn't blame them actually.
Several years ago I was stung several times on an arm while reaching over a colony of bumble bees as I was trimming some shrubs. They had taken up residence in an abandoned wasp nest concealed deep in a hedge. That was a pain that lingered!
