When we went for our run today there were a ton of bees on the flower patch on the corner of the track. At first we were just pointing out a few honey bees and talking about how they're getting pollen from the flowers to make honey, and observing the big yellow balls on their hind legs which is where the pollen is, and talking about how God made bees to pollinate the plants by spreading out the pollen and carrying them to all the flowers, and discussing the parts of the flower and where the pollen is, and...

But as we continued observing we kept finding more and more bees, especially when we turned the corner and found these really neat grayish-colored flowers that had a very strong scent (I sure wished I could have identified them!), and when we got there we saw tons of others, bunches of bumblebees and even a wasp. We watched at a distance, and I told him that as long as he was gentle and didn't disturb or scare them, they wouldn't bother him either.

"Consider the lilies how they grow: they toil not, they spin not; and yet I say unto you, that Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these."
