Is she drunk, this bumblebee,
as she stumbles and crawls
inside the crocus flower?
She is certainly bedraggled,
having just woken
from a very long sleep,
and in the urgent need
to drink a flower’s nectar
she forgot her usual early morning cleansing.
I love this busy Moma,
this fuzzy beastie, little Queen,
all hum and quiver,
full of vigour.

It’s that time of year, again, with insects and flowers soon to be everywhere! Great photos, Ash!
It would be lovely to get some warm sunny weather as well. Keep writing, keep learning, keep moving!
Lovely, upliftning photos and text.
Wonderful and light (in the midst of chaos).
Thank you very much 🙂
(tried to push ‘like’ button, but I have some tech
problems this end, so I hope to ‘like’ later 😉 ).
Thanks Marina. Stay fit (I hope you have stairs in your house) and well. And safe!
Maravillosas fotografías. Me encantan. Muchas gracias.Un abrazo grande.
Thank you Barbara.
Love the pics and the poem – very inspiring. Thank you.
Thank you Clive. I think that was my first sighting of a bumblebee in my little garden! Bring on some more sunshine and warmth.
ces fleurs sont très jolies! Merci pour le partage 💖
Her hair-do made me smile! We saw some deleriously drunken bees on a willow tree full of catkins the other day in the warm sunshine, it was the most uplifting, life-affirming, thing in the world to stand and watch.
This year the spring feels like it is later and I can’t believe I didn’t pot up any crocus! The bees that I have seen this year are the Garden or Early Bumblebees (B.pratorum) and they have been able to feed at the crocus in the borders. Lovely; your delirious bees aren’t restricted by any of the Covid rules! Is that how we’ll be when the time arrives? 🙏
