I love Bee Balm or Monarda. It is such an interesting flower shape.
The bees love it.
This tall Monarda makes an excellent backdrop for this bench where you can sit a spell.
It is warm again here in Minnesota, the humidity is high. It wears me out, so I usually have an nap after work.
I hate the weeks when I have to give up my Monday night for meetings where nothing gets decided. No one ever makes motions..but they discuss lots of “stuff.” I always present my list of concerns..Computers and Printers that don’t work…Vacuum cleaners that don’t work..most with their rummage sale tags still attached. ( DUH..why do you suppose people were selling the damn thing in the first place??) I guess I can always sweep the threadbare carpets. Some days the humidifiers do not work..or they over flow and do not shut off..I am a pretty good dehumidifier repairwoman but I cannot work miracles.
A safety issue that I brought up was totally ignored by the board, they offered no help or solutions other than a volunteer might be able to fix it. I am discouraged. I did not feel like going into work on Tuesday morning..but I went anyway and tried to stay cheerful for the visitors.
Friday I will fix the safety issue myself…a bookcase leaning at a precarious angle will be unloaded into a sturdier bookcase. I will hire the Grand boys to help shuffle the huge books filled with National Geographic’s that no one ever looks at. I am capable of coming up with a plan so that we don’t have a nasty accident with an overloaded failing bookshelf.
I am reminded of a poster that my husband used to have in his office. It was a toothless old man in a Air Force flight suit and a helmet..it said “It is hard to soar with eagles when you work with turkeys.”
The bee in my bonnet will fly off into the Monarda now..thanks for listening:)
