Happiness is not in the mere possession of money; it lies in the joy of achievement, in the thrill of creative effort.
Franklin D. Roosevelt
It is another hot day today. This is the view out of my window near my computer.

On my way back I spotted this bumble bee buzzing around the agapanthus. I would have liked a closer shot but when I did move closer the beet went for me.
This was a very large bee and I think perhaps it was a native bee. Most of the bees we see are not native. They are from Europe.
When I came home later there was a large beetle in my front hall.
