A Stroll in the Garden

Has a bee ever landed on you, and instead of getting scared, you appreciate the possibility that you got confused for a flower? -Unknown

Bees do have a smell, you know, and if they don’t they should, for their feet are dusted with spices from a million flowers. -Ray Bradbury, Dandelion Wine

Aerodynamically, the bumble bee shouldn’t be able to fly, but the bumble bee doesn’t know it, so it goes on flying anyway. -Mary Kay Ash

It’s not so much how busy you are, but why you are busy.  The bee is praised.  The mosquito is swatted. -Mary O’Connor

  7. The flowers, the bees and the quotes all make for a very uplifting post, thank you!
    Traditionally allotment plots are just full of rows of vegetables but over the past twenty years there’s been a change to mixing in flowers with all that veg.I think it’s because so many of the new generation of allotmentiers are women, anyhow the flowers are the best way to attract bees and other pollinators and look lovely too. I never dig up self-seeded poppies or foxgloves if I can help it!

    • It sounds like women have made a vast improvement to the allotments, Allison! I don’t dig up volunteer poppies and foxgloves, either! 🙂
