Gotta look after the bees

I’ve written before about bees. You can read my offerings here, here and here.

Hubby’s Canal Boat Art

Today we were coming out of a shop in town and Hubby noticed a tired drone on the tiled entrance. Rather than leave it there to be trampled on, he managed to coax it on to a tissue and tried to put it on a plant (read weed) close to the door.
It preferred to hang on to the tissue, so I took it and headed towards a planter that had a display of brightly coloured flowers in it.
Mr Bee was either fussy or colour blind as he would not get on a yellow daisy heaving with pollen and anyone passing may have well wondered what I was doing as it probably looked liked I was wiping the flower heads!
Eventually, the bee settled on a purple pansy type bloom and I left him noshing away to regain his strength.

MSM loves flowers and colour so has recently been planting out in the garden.
Hubby took these pictures of her planters so far, and the pair of them are in the process of putting some more into her borders in the back garden.

I hope word goes round to the bees that she is ‘open for business’.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and have a terrible sweet tooth for jelly babies or fruit pastilles. Best friends are Hubby, our dog Maggie, Bro in NZ, MSM and MOH (and his dog). I am also a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! Due to a nightmare of a house sale in 2014, 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat until April 2017. We made strong friendships both on and off the water, and enjoyed swan and duck families for neighbours. Sadly times change and we were once again house hunting until September. We now reside in a small bungalow a short distance from the beach on the Lincolnshire coast.

    Aw So lovely to read of you rescuing one little bee. πŸ™‚
    I’m sure the message (or scent!) will get around and lots of bees will soon flock to these lovely flowers. πŸ™‚
