The Bumble Bee Pillow

The Bumble Bee Pillow

The Summer of 2019 I kept finding this Bumble Bee in my kitchen. It would be there at odd times, when doors hadn't yet been opened. It was calm and seemed to know I wouldn't hurt it. I was able to gently pick it up and pet it on the back and take it outside. This continued to happen on several occasions. One morning I found it, put it on some Lilac’s we had inside, and brought it back outside. It didn’t fly away until after I pet its back again and said good-bye. It was a totally memorable experience. My kids still talk about our Bee.
