A Zinnia may wonder why
There is only one house fly
On duty today at this late date.....
With little desire to pollinate!

Honey bees who get cold
Knew when to hibernate
Without them being told..
Of the change in climate!

They instinctively know
We will soon have snow...
And huddle around the hive
To keep the queen bee alive...

Forecast says we are going to have 3 inches of snow on Friday and soon the Zinnias will be
gone so I am shooting pictures of them now:) The fly was acting sluggish as it is cold today.

Best view in Light box! Thank you!!!
