Bee-Have!

Mellow Yellow - taking a rest

Mellow Yellow – taking a rest

I am still attacking the freshly edited first draft of Kirkenes Blue so that means lots of time spent pouring over the document time spent taking photographs of the life in the Limery – purely for inspiration and to make the alpha brainwaves start, er, waving.

The other day we had a visitor in the form of a honey bee (as opposed to a bumbling variety) and most welcome it was too. These guys are under threat from left, right and centre and yet are a hugely important part of the ecosystem that keeps us all alive (if only we would let it!).

Here, the Limery’s own gigantic courgette plant provided respite for this bee from its busy day – in fact I suspect that the bee just stumbled upon it, the leaves are that big!

Is there no flying thing in the Limery that isn't hairy??

And what is any Curcurbita without a bee?

A curcur-ita. Obviously.

  1. Bad pun. BAD PUN! Love the sports car. I am sure you attract all of the fairy girls with that one Mr Snail. It’s red so it goes faster as well. I see Ms Snail is off and away with the permaculture people leaving you, no doubt, at home. Dangerous move Ms S. Hopefully you are working hard on revising (or whatever authors do in their spare time aside from taking photos of bees that is…) and not sitting around in the Limery eating pies and chips and quaffing sustainable ale and contemplating your navel. Remember to do the dishes the day that Ms Snail gets back. Just sayin’…
