Nature Bee Wild

“I must have flowers, always, and always.” – Claude Monet

on wild days,
nature mandalas
à la thorn
 
delight-full
from every angle,
my passion
 
hungry bee
will twerk coneflower
for honey

    1. Thank you, Marja. And yes, that is a passion flower. And sort of the queen of my garden. :-)

  2. What beautiful photos Magaly. I do hope they are from your own garden, in which case you must be very proud of it.

  3. Oh, these are a joy, and I so love all the goodies in your garden. Also thrilled to see there are still bees in the big city.

    1. Their numbers aren't as high as they used to be, but we still have bees. I was just looking at a ginormous bumblebee rolling around in my passion flower. She looks so happy.

  5. A delightful series of haiku flowers, thorny or covered in bees. You have been busy with your plants, Magaly, and they have blossomed to perfection. I was away a week and came back to devastation – except for a grow bag of potatoes and a sunflower that is struggling to bloom.

    1. Oh, no! I hope things heal soon. I've been there--coming home to droopiness and breaking--and it's the worse of feelings.

    1. I wish I had captured it on video. I have no idea what the bee was doing, but it kept on bending up and down at the waist. I might've laughed a bit too much.

  13. Your bees are much more energetic than our fluffy mason bees. :) And the mandala image is a new way of appreciating some of my spikier plants.

    1. Leafcutter bees are rather athletic, indeed. But I do love the coat of mason bees so much.

  14. LOL, I feel a kinship to that prickly mandala. :D You do take some really gorgeous nature shots, and pick perfect words to go with them. The last one had me giggling (there's some bees in this house, there's some bees in this house). The middle one is my favorite though. I love the line breaks and the ways it can be read.

    1. For me, gardening is a hobby like brushing is to everyone with teeth: terrible things would happen if one stops.

  19. Honestly, I've never thought of twerking a coneflower before, but then, I'm not a bee!
