This morning, out in the garden, the world is a-buzz.
The bees are so happy to have the warmth.
No wonder someone once capped the term
"Busy as a bee".
Trying to catch one still enough to take a photo is quite the challenge.
Especially when they are diving in and out of foxgloves!
Can you imagine the view inside that flower?
Not that the bee is paying attention to that...too busy collecting pollen.
...but, hey...maybe they do notice the beauty...I'd like to think so.
Some early mornings I find a big bumble bee asleep on a flower.
Maybe they were so drunk on nectar and the loveliness of the flower
that they decided just to curl up and have a nap.
As I was watching the bees, I noticed a tiny movement on the flower.
This is like one of those 'find the hidden image in the picture' games...
Do you see her?
Blending right in with the colours...
Isn't nature fantastic?!
A bug that I've never seen before was also visiting the foxgloves...
How pretty is that golden beetle?
The honeybees from the hives are also crazy busy collecting food for honey production...
I hadn't seen many butterfly's this year but the weather being what it has been,
I wouldn't want to risk my weightless, fragile body, floating around in all the cold and rain either.
But this morning they were out as well...
If you have high blood pressure or stress, just sit and watch a swallow tail.
Guaranteed to calm you right down...
And the birds!
Oh the symphony of song in the early part of the day!
The dawn chorus.
It always starts with the robins.
I call them the hardest working birds in showbiz.
First ones up and last ones in.
This morning I caught this one having a bath...
I was lucky enough to see one of the most handsome birds as well...
The cedar waxwing.
So dashing in his velvet coat and black mask!
And so I've spent another few hours day dreaming in the garden when I should be
out there weeding and pruning...oh well...there's always tomorrow.
