1.1 Million Bee Colonies Dead This Year (May 3, 2008)

I saw a worker bee yesterday at 5 p.m., foraging in the beat up, mowed down, but unsprayed, clover in our front yard. Packed pollen baskets were yellow. (White Clover pollen is yellow?!) This was the first and only honeybee I've seen so far this year! [Update 2008-7-11 0930 One standard yellow-brown Apis mellifera L. worker bee on this morning's clover! The other afternoon's bee was actually gray (so am I ;-) and bit smaller. Carniolan? Solitary?]

Even though Michelle Wie missed the cut at Edina, I'm still a fan. She's sort of like the Chicago Cubs.

Gee, I always forget how this works, for some reason: 6CO2 + 6H2O (+ light energy) → C6H12O6 + 6O2
