this past weekend kicked off with a trip to the market...

ooooh lala - lovely fruity cakes with pansies on top!

i think this was banana walnut layered cake – mmmm
(wish i would have had a piece!)

but i did get to try this – lemon poppyseed cornbread!
the combination of cornbread and lemon is fantastic.

and the stacks of interesting cookies just never get old.
(plus, do you see the chocolate covered rice cakes? what a great idea!)

then around the homestead,
we had a zillion of these big boys harping away...
(what big ears they have! better to hear their lovers calling.)

and keegan keeps up with his second hive – while kritter supervises.
(she knows not to go too close since she's been stung before!)

and here's a close up!
check out these little ladies just chatting away on their way out –
and look at all that pollen they have on their back legs. so neat!
(bees feed the protein-rich pollen to their young.)

well, that's about it for our weekend besides having the MS walk in the cold and rain. no photos this time since we were all covered in ponchos and umbrellas.
oh well, it was fun nonetheless –
hope you're having a wonderful wednesday!
