The last few years I have heard that there is a shortage of bees, well certainly I for one have seen no shortage! I have a garden and so I understand how they help the gardener, and the farmer. But this year I have seen so many different types of bees and so many buzzing around at their work it is odd.
Of course I have a reason for being observant when it comes to bees, I am allergic to their stings and so i am a little bit afraid. No I am afraid big time. Friday evening we sat outside, but I retreated indoors many times because we have become very popular with a hornet! Last summer we had several kamikaze hornets, who late at night dive bombed our outside light!Agh I went outside again only to give up as the hornet came back; later however the coast was clear.
Here is a shadow of a lamp near the castle in Fougeres. There are some beautiful street lights here.
So what makes you afraid ?
The French word for fear is peur, sounds a bit like purr.
The French word for frighten is effrayé
Origin for the word afraid.
