Fun and cute, little fruit

Happy Weekend all!

I am overjoyed to have cooler weather that goes nicely with the beautiful autumnal colors on the trees.  We had a warmer spell again recently, and let's just say I'm not a fan of that unseasonable warmth. I know I'm not alone in that sentiment.

The mail carrier who visits my office is also a beekeeper.  He mentioned to me yesterday that when the weather fluctuates as it has been lately -- when it's cold for a while, then a warm-up occurs -- the bees get confused and fly out of their hives, searching for food (flowers). Only, there aren't any flowers blooming right now to feed the bees. They return to the hives hungry, and eat a lot of the honey that they've produced all summer, dipping into their storage. This affects their health, and some may not survive the winter. {insert big sad face}

My card today features cute fruit, and I guess you could say this does indeed relate to bees and pollination. :-)

All the stamps are from Lawn Fawn's My Silly Valentine.

Thanks for coming by today, and may your day be filled with blessings!

Such a cute card, Colleen! Interesting your comment on bees. You know here in France we have outlawed some pesticides that are believed to be leading to serious reductions in bee populations, a dangerous trend world wide. Bees are such an important part of the ecosystem, their pollination helps grow the very foods we eat and without them? What then? A scary thought. Oh goodness, I should have just stopped at 'Cute card!'
