Stop, look - and then smell the roses

A bee stung me today while I was smelling my roses...I don't think he realized that I'm the one who planted them for him. Ah well, it made me very very thankful that I am not allergic to bees -- I like not having to be afraid of them. It does hurt, though, so I'll keep a better look out for them next time I smell my glorious purple amethyst!


  1. OH NO!!! Boo on that ornery bee! Hope you're all better now :)

  2. Sounds like he was pretending to be a rattlesnake ;-) !
    Next time, wrap the sting site with wet tobacco or a piece of raw'll be better within a couple of hours...just don't smoke the discarded tobacco or eat the potato piece...they draw out the venom!
