It’s rare to hear someone say, “It’s the bee’s knees.”
It is, however, a very fun expression.
I love whimsy and this expression is whimsy all the way.
Do you like bees?
Most people run whenever a bee buzzes by.
Me? I think I just put on these boots. [wink]
Now I must admit that I’m not a fan of yellow jackets and wasps, though I am no entomologist, I don’t think wasps are bees. At least not in my world.
Bumble bees of all sizes, and honey bees and their cousins, are frequent visitors to my garden. And if one chooses to garden, one must make alliances with the bees. Sometimes I actually enjoy their company while I weed.
I have read that bumble bees are not capable of flying….but they do.
God knows best. I think maybe he chuckled about the bumbler when he created that little bundle of joy.
By now you are thinking that I like bees. Well yes I do. In fact, enough so that I actually have a board on Pinterest.
Guess what it’s called?
Uh huh….It’s the Bee’s Knees.
All the photos on the blog today are from my Pinterest board.
Just for fun, I decided to share a few with you today.
I guess I needed a little whimsy in my day.
Do you ever need a bit of whimsy in your day?
Oh…and for the record….I looked up the origin of “It’s the bees knees.” There were several ideas, I liked this one best. And since I find it difficult to understand Shakespeare, especially Macbeth when it is dramatically presented…well, this origin seemed the most plausible.
I would love to have a ‘Bee Party’ – oh the fun and possibilities.
My friend Jennifer of Celebrating Everyday Life created a ‘Queen Bee Luncheon’ that was sooo very cute.
Have you ever told someone, “You’re the bee’s knees!”
I think YOU are the bee’s knees!! I do.
Anyone who stops by to read this blog fits that description perfectly. You are the best!!!
Thanks for indulging me and my bit of bee silliness today.
Maybe you are smiling now, just like me.
Now go and have An Extraordinary Day!
