Hahaha
The Georgia O'Keefe one is priceless!
Also, the opposite of Straight As!

LOL

Thanks, I needed that.

XOXO

P.S. I planted in my little test garden all kinds of wiild flowers to see if I get some bees next year!

very very cute, especially the one about the hummingbird and the bees.

Marie Smith said...

The bees are finding it cold here these days. It was only 8C overnight.

Growing up in the country I've had plenty of bees land on me...and sting me....but the one that I remember the most was when I was sitting in church, all dressed up, and I looked down to see a huge bumblebee walking along on my lap. Talk about fear. Couldn't cry out because I was in church so I just sat still as a board and stared at the darn thing until it finally flew off.

If the birds and the bees can get along why can't we :)

Laurie said...

I love them all! I just did a bee painting in my journal this morning! Have a great day! Can you smell smoke?

Bob said...

Gay Bees.
I got my giggle on.

Debra She Who Seeks said...

@ Laurie -- No, we're not getting any of the US wildfires smoke here in Edmonton, but Calgary and southern Alberta are blanketed with it. I guess we're too far north or have been protected by a cloudy low temperature front the past few days.

The image of HRH is just so adorable! What a fantastic selection of Bee stuff! I've saved several of these to my Pinterest boards. Have a Bee-utiful day!

anne marie in philly said...

HRH has a sense of humor. and we REALLY need da beez!

Kirk said...

Gay bees. I guess that explains the queen.

Linda said...

Delightful display of our fuzzy, winged friends. Couldn't resist a smile.

Mistress Maddie said...

I love the second meme!! I would love that!

Moving with Mitchell said...

I looked quickly at the images. I'll have to work up slowly. Fatally allergic and stung MANY times in my life, which is likely why a local allergy became a general one. I love bees. I know what wonders they are. But seeing one up close sets me off. I promise to keep trying.

Deedles said...

These are the bees' knees! I hope that that is a shoe at the bottom of that first t-shirt, otherwise some guy needs to see a doctor, stat!
the Georgia O'Keefe one is classic! All of the cute ones stole my heart.

Debra She Who Seeks said...

@ Kirk -- Hahahahahaha, good one!

@ Moving with Mitchell -- Sorry, man, I'll put a trigger warning on any future bee posts.

Leanna said...

The pictures of the humming bird and the bees sipping water and the bumble climbing to the window had me going, awwwww.

e said...

These are wonderful! And funny, and sweet. I love your bee posts!

brewella deville said...

You saved the best for last, even if the cat looks completely over it.

Parnassus said...

Hello Debra, I must have missed the call for bee images. Many old coins and tokens had bees and hives on them representing Industry. Here is a nice-looking example:

Debra She Who Seeks said...

@ Parnassus (Jim) -- Thanks for the link. That's a beautiful bee and beehive themed coin!

Rosemary said...

I have just bought a lovely cushion with a beautiful bee embroidered on it - I love it.

Lady M said...

Great post Debra - we can never have to many bees. I love them.

Bruce.desertrat said...

Some from my own photos (I love catching flowers with bees in 'em.)

Ha. Gay bees - clever!
HRH is the bee's knees. Err, the bee's head. Very cute.
Cheers.

DEZMOND said...

Both T-shirts are so cute! And the B-Cat too!

bobbie said...

Bee-you-tee-ful BEES!!

Mike said...

Bees of all sizes have been missing this year. Usually when the Rose of Sharon blooms the big bees are out in force. I've only seen a few this year.

Debra She Who Seeks said...

@ bruce.desertrat -- Wow, what beautiful photos! Love all the bees in the cacti blooms especially! Thanks for creating that link for me!

Joanne Noragon said...

My granddaughter got her first tattoo. A bee.

Guillaume said...

I like bees because I love honey.

Cal's Canadian Cave of Coolness said...

I do love me the bees.

Kay G. said...

Have I told you this before? My sister had a sign that she put up after she got her first job.
"No Bees, no honey.
No Job, no money."
She still doesn't like to work! :-)

G. B. Miller said...

Pretty cool pics.

I must be a little obtuse today as I don't really get the Georgia O'Keefe one.

Laura said...

i love all these bee images! i'm so worried about the bees, i hardly ever see any around here and it makes me sad so when i do see one i tell them how much i love them and ask them to please come back again and bring their friends.

The Georgia O'Keeffe one is very funny. In paint class, many years ago, one of our assignments was to paint a Georgia O'Keeffe inspired work. It was not easy to capture the sensual style and look at a flower differently, but it was one of my favorite assignments.
The bees with the hummingbird are so cute!
Thank you for sharing these. :)

Doctor Z said...

Hehehehe ... the Georgia O'Keeffe comic is so funny! You know I'm swiping it so that I can include it in my Modern Art class. *snicker*

Maybe one day I'll have to tell you about the imaginary friend I had when I was a kid -- Bizz Buzz the Bumblebee. :)

DVArtist said...

Fantastic post on bees. I do everything I can to attract them to my yard.
Have a very nice day.

Busy Bee Suz said...

This is a BEE-U-TIFUL post. You know I'm all about the bees....the pic of the hummer with the bumble bees took my breath away; lovely!!

Bill Lisleman said...

I'm copying the Georgia O'Keefe one. One of my childhood memories is being stung by a bee I was harassing. I meant no harm just overly curious.

Willym said...

Good to have you back. Hope the summer was a good one despite all the restrictions and everyone there is healthy?

Magaly Guerrero said...

Yesterday, while I watered my plants, I had a wasp land on my forearm. We stared at each other for a few seconds... Now I can't believe I didn't thanked it for the compliment.

Cynthia said...

Hurrah for gay bees.

Travel said...

The hummingbird is sharing with honeybees. Honeybees are thinner, more compact. My father and grandfather were beekeepers, I was raised on a honey farm, known by the neighbors as the funny farm.

Rommy said...

I was very charmed by the bees and the hummingbird getting their refreshment on at the same time. Too cute!

baili said...

as child i loved bees as back there they were in abundance in spring specially

sweet post dear Debra :)
blessings!
