Port Loring’s Bumble Bee’s

One thing we have lots of around our home here in Port Loring, Ontario, Canada, is Bumble Bees. All types can be seen on our Sedum Plants, which are out in full bloom. The scent they give off is also fantastic. Every year I have to take some pictures of these furry little creatures. You know … they are so gentle you can even pet them as they go about their business of harvesting the sweet nectar that these flowers give away for free. Fantastic to see. Below are some pictures I took. For better viewing click on each picture to Enlarge.

The old Mill

Here is a few pictures of our old Mill with a Water Wheel I made years ago. It was about had it, but with a bit of old wood and some tender care, we brought it back to life. We set it at the end of our driveway where folks drive in can see it. Turned out really nice, especially when my lovely wife got finished adding a garden around it. Click on any picture to enlarge.
