What a Difference a Day (or Two Weeks) Makes

Once cauliflower gets growing, you'd better stand back!

January 22nd:

It's now sitting in my fridge, awaiting it's creamy fate: boiled to within an inch of it's life, beaten to a smooth white pulp, and mixed with heavy whipping cream and chopped walnuts.  Nomnomnomnomnom.  Snow Ball is the variety.  It's a good one, too, one I'll most definitely be growing again.  All the others are barely budding.

Some months ago I found a wild beehive in a hollow tree down by the creek.  They were a welcome sight considering the state of bees lately, what with colony collapse disorder, varroa mites, the drought, and all the crap we've been spraying in the environment that they have to deal with.  While out taking the cauliflower pictures today, I noticed some of the Asian greens were blooming.  I looked closer and saw ...

...the new neighbors!  Can you see all five?  At first I thought there were only three, but when I enlarged the picture I saw another one flying by between a couple blooms.  

And I then looked even closer and saw a little bee ass sticking out of a bright yellow bloom.  Man, he was digging to China, all upside down and shit.

Can you see him?  He's hiding really good.

Little cutie pie.
