Nerdin Gardens: A Wee, Busy Honey Bee
I see a wee, busy Honey bee,
Drifting toward a flowering tree.
While working at feeding the nest.
'Twas warily pressed to take a rest,
It strives to perform for the hive,
So the swarm may all remain alive.
~ Wanda Kubat-Nerdin in Nerdin Gardens
Even bees need to take an occasional break in order to gain momentum once again and perform. Very seldom, have I witnessed one completely still on a blooming plant until ready to fly, going about it's day.
We are so very thankful for the work ethic of the honey bees because it they shirked their responsibilities and duties like some humans, our garden would suffer greatly. They indeed are a gardeners true friend!
