What's it all about Alfie ! by beryl

What's it all about Alfie !

We have been out in the garden all afternoon , so really no photo opportunity , and my little helper was there by my side all the way , sometimes in the way , bless him !! Can you see his dirty whiskers ! which brings to mind that beautiful Liverpool Lullaby sung by Cilla Black .
Ooh , you are a mucky kid,
Dirty as a dustbin lid , When he hears the things you did !!!
You'll get a smack from your daddy !
( no smacking needed - he was good as gold !!)

While out in the Garden I went to check one of our compost bins - took the lid off only to hear a funny noise ! and before I new it the buzz of the bumble bees deafened me and one zoomed right at my face and stung me just under my eyebrow I think he got trapped behind my glasses ! A bit painful but I applied antihistamine cream immediately so no swelling !! And now the lid is firmly replaced on the bin !
Love the photo, and the song!

Well that was bad luck Beryl, he didn’t give you much chance did he...a bad tempered bee! A blissful day for Alfie, almost as good as a walk!

Awww glad you had that cream. Will you eventually leave the lid off though?

Great shot of Alfie

@louannwarren No shall keep the lid firmly on now !! There are ventilation holes around the top of the compost bin - so the bees can come and go without been rained in !!!

I just played that song by Cilla - she does have the most wonderful voice! These rough muzzled dogs always get their mouths dirty or wet!

Lovely capture of Alfie and good to hear he has been helping you in the garden today. A fright for you with the bee attack and a little unerving next time you use the compost bin.
