Painful lesson

First ever bee sting - and I wasn't anywhere near the hives.  We'd been fertilising the blueberries and it was my job to push the mulch back under the bushes.  An insect got stuck in my hair - I didn't realise it was a bee and swept it away. One dead bee and one sore finger.
The sting is the thing that looks like a pimple towards the left.  It's now deep purple.

Lesson: make sure you wear a hat while working amidst flowers!
