This pic of a bee on my lavender bush is my submission for the "Hope" category on "A Certain Slant of Light's" photo challenge "Faith, Hope and Charity."
In my mind, with all of the challenges that our world is facing right now (Colony Collapse among them), I feel such hope when I see the bees going about their business in my garden. I have hope that this world will continue, that flowers will continue to bloom, that there will be bright days ahead for all of us.
PS: Can you see my groovy red bike showing through the slats of the fence? Isn't that totally cool!
