I noticed that the bees were swarming out of a second story window of an abandoned church. The building had a real estate sign so I called the number. The phone was immediately answered and I told the woman that one of her sale properties was swarming bees. She too was shocked and said she would take care of it.
When I got off the phone a woman about my age had arrived at the bus stop. The elderly lady and I told her to watch our for the bees. "I called the real estate company." I told her. Her response? "Why did you do that? They are going to kill the bees! Is that your plan? To have them kill the bees?!" I informed her that I had no plan and that she was free to call them too. It was the most unexpected comment. But then I remembered that this corner served a hospital and perhaps she was insane or paranoid.
Now I'm walking home and am interested to see what awaits me at the corner. hopefully peaceful bees back in their hive. I wonder what caused them to swarm?
