The other "queen bee"
The last of my four beloved cats, this ancient feline is the "queen bee" of our home. Dallas enjoys gardening and beekeeping, but the latter from a respectful distance. At nearly 18 years old, she is the benevolent ruler of our household and does whatever she likes with her days.
This photo of her was taken at the end of February. The days were beginning to grow longer again and we were dreaming of a new season of working in the gardens with our honey bees.
