What is it with Azaleas?

April 10, 2011

I am beginning to think that I need to pick a different time of year for photos. For some reason, azalea blooming time spells disaster for me. If you remember last year, I managed to severely sprain my ankle while photographing a sock. This year the spring photo shoot also proved to be quite the adventure.

First, there were the bees. Big, giant, threatening bumblebees. Not the sweet little honey bees. Or even the cute, fuzzy, docile bumblebees.

These were get-in-your-face-and-talk-about-yo-mama kind of bees. Ready-for-a-fight gangsta bees. Try as I might, I couldn’t avoid wincing when they dive bombed my hat.

You think you can hang out in my flowers? I don’t think so!

“You need to take yo’ human self outa here right now before things get ugly.”

And what would a photo shoot be without a fall. This time I fell flat on my tooshie while trying to get posed in the place Princess Buttercup found to be most artistically pleasing. Did I mention I landed in a container of rainwater? Or the feet in the air look that has SmallFry laughing hysterically? Who knew that photography was so hazardous to your health?

Hat in photos are a preview of a soon-to-be-released pattern. Details next time.

    LOL! No, seriously. Laughing. Snickering. Giggling. Whatever you want to call it, this is funny. I am almost glad you were attacked by bees, so I could read the phrase “get-in-your-face-and-talk-about-yo-mama kind of bees.”

    Almost. I hope you weren’t stung!

    LOL! Love the pics and the hat too! I guess Spring just isn’t your season.

    I always find your blog so informative.

    Today I learned that scared facial grimaces scare away bees.

    Good to know. :)
