Tell a story, fifth edition

I have been nominated for this challenge by Tom over at Slumdogsolider, who has kindly provided this picture to write about.

It was a beautiful day. The sun was shining and they decided to go for a walk in the meadow. He was looking forward to meat for dinner, but he had to catch it first.
The flowers tickled his nose and made him sneeze, but for her they were full of Nature’s nectar and she thrived on it.
They had been companions for a while though it wasn’t exactly what one would call a normal relationship, but when you’re young and not quite sure what you’re doing it’s nice to have a bit of company.
Besides, she was a great warning system with those buzzing wings of hers. It gave him the chance to run and hide whilst she contentedly flitted from bloom to bloom as all bees do and no-one batted an eye.

I now have to nominate 3 bloggers with the invitation to write a story or poem from my choice of picture, then pass on the invite to another three and their choice and so on and so forth.

This time round could I please invite the following bloggers to join in:

The Diary of a Country Bumpkin
A bereaved single dad
and Trent at Trent’s World

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! In November 2020, we lost our beloved Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too. On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    The fox reminds me of Nick Wilde from Zootopia. Good story.
