It's the flowering season of the Tecoma stans (Yellow Trumpet Bush, Common Yellow Elder) again.

When I see bees, I feel both happy and scare.

The world's bee population is dwindling and this is bad news because bees are very important plant pollinators and their presence is something to rejoice about. So I feel happy just to see them.

I feel scare because I am allergic to some insect stings. I have been to the hospitals twice for severe allergic reactions that caused me to develop hives and to have difficulty in breathing.
