Friday; A whole lotta buzzin’ going on and some public procreating.

I was piddling around the yard the other day and I could smell summer.

No, not chlorine, sunscreen or stinky dogs…I could smell our jasmine trees blooming.

As I got closer to the tree’s not only did the smell get stronger, but could feel the buzz of buzzing. The bee’s were having a big ol’ bee bash. And they did not care if I stood by and watched.

It pleased me to know they were doing their job…and having fun. IMG_1428

That is my cousin Joe-Bob avoiding eye contact with me. Rude.

I am thinking I need a macro lens…eventually.

But, this one is doing a pretty good job with my close-ups. (28mm-135)

And then, to my shock and amazement I caught these two gettin’ jiggy wit it.

Oh, my virginal eyes.

Did I just UP the rating of my blog?

Could it be any worse than the Nekkid zebra?

I think not.

Have a great weekend everyone!!!

Lets remember the real meaning of this holiday. A salute to those who have served our country…the real super-hero's.

Your jasmine is wonderful! I wish you all a safe and happy Memorial Day. I hope the bees behave themselves!

And as for the lizards..*singing off key* love is in the air....

Caution/Lisa said...

Could Mr. Lizard have not sprung for a room at the Motel 6 at least? Cheapskate.

Betsy Banks Adams said...

You know what that last picture means, don't you????? You will just increase the population of your lizards around your house.... Hmmmmmm.... ha ha

Love your Jasmine tree. We have one called the Confederate Jasmine --similar but very different. Ours doesn't bloom until June/July....

Have a wonderful weekend.
Hugs,
Betsy

This is NOT the type of public procreation I was hoping to see.

Stephanie said...

Quite avant garde of you to post those lizards!
The jasmine is beautiful, and I'm sure it smells divine.

I never would have believed I'd see the day when Suz posted porn! I'm shocked!! NOT!

Technodoll said...

That 3rd pic is so freakin' amazing, wow! Love, love, love it!

As for the horny lizards... er... *grabs husband and runs to the bedroom*

People Who Know Me Would Say: said...

Amen to that, Suz!


And I'm thrilled to see honey bees wherever they are because they're dwindling in population.

And I never liked effin' creepy crawlies.

:)

Leslie @ Bei Mondi said...

Your jiggy couple are cracking me up. Girl, give them their privacy. Its not like they can afford a room, you know. Hehe, enjoy your weekend :)

George said...

You're doing fine without a macro lens. These are wonderful pictures. Our jasmine is still a couple of weeks away from blooming, but I enjoyed seeing yours. I hope you have a wonderful weekend.

Lakeland Jo said...

summer is definitely in the air! Still too cold for public pro-creation here in Cumbria!

M.L. @ The House of Whimsy said...

Too funny, Sue, but then there's always something to chuckle about when I come over here. Man, you guys have been busy and everything looks beautiful!
I looooooved all the pics from yester-year, below. Especially that wedding day photo...priceless AND adorable!!!
Happy Anniversary. But you never told us whether or not you got the bronze do-dad for the hubby. Ha!
Happy Memorial Day!

Lizard Porn??? Wow.... you can see all KINDS of things on your blog!

Hope y'all have had a great Mem Day weekend. We just got home from the beach a little bit ago. A good time was had by all. And yes, we did give the kids a little "mini sermon" on the importance of FREEDOM and the fact that many people have made the ultimate sacrifice in serving our fine country!

Laurie Brandriet Keller said...

Hey Busy Babe, love to you and yours on this and every holiday. Love your bees and your buzzin' always. Thanks for your encouragement about my photos since we have been friends ... it all has meant so much. I am busy working on what I'm showing at the Art Fest in historic uptown Watertown on June 12 !!! xoxo.

I think you should get an advertising deal from an insurance company.

So easy a caveman could do it.

Unknown said...

Those photos are so clear that I can practically SMELL the jasmine blooming. It helped me to know what to look for, in case ours decide to bloom. They are not nearly as happy as yours are, that's for sure!
You certainly did "stalkerazzi" those jiggy lizards - they are probably wishing they had decided instead to "get a room."

Unknown said...

You are so funny : )
Lizards getting jiggy with it. I want to thank you for putting that out into blog world. Fabulous.

Have a grateful day said...

I love your photos...what kind of camera do you have?
