Something to brighten the day

A Bee And A Wasp

Yes, many pictures, one bee and one wasp…now that they are gone, I miss them so. And the flowers too! But that’s how is goes where I live…seasons!

“Bees do have a smell, you know, and if they don’t they should, for their feet are dusted with spices from a million flowers.”

~ Ray Bradbury


“If we die, we’re taking you with us.”
~ The Bees


“We come from the earth, we return to the earth, and in between we garden.”

~ Unknown


“The busy bee has no time for sorrow.”

~ William Blake

“Words are like bees – some create honey and others leave a sting.”

~ Unknown


“When the bee comes to your house, let her have beer; you may want to visit the bee’s house some day.”

~ Congo Proverb


For bees, the flower is the fountain of life

For flowers, the bee is the messenger of love.
~ Kahlil Gibran


“If the bee disappeared off the face of the earth, man would only have four years left to live.”
~ Maurice Maeterlinck


“The only reason for being a bee that I know of is to make honey…. And the only reason for making honey, is so as I can eat it.”

~ Winnie the Pooh


“After you get stung, you can’t get unstung
no matter how much you whine about it.”

~ Sue Monk Kidd

“At what point is a wasp ever going to have a chat with a spider?”

~ Karl Pilkington


“The serpent, the king, the tiger, the stinging wasp, the small child, the dog owned by other people, and the fool; these seven ought not to be awakened from sleep.”

~ Chanakya

“Serpent-breath was famous…wasp-sting, short and lethal.”

~ Bernard Cornwell

Tomorrow is National Lager Day, Dewey Decimal System Day, Human Rights Day, and Nobel Prize Day.

Hope you have a great day, night or evening,

where ever you may be!

  1. Your photographs are beautiful and the quotes touch my heart. I love bees and worry about them as well. If we can’t take better care of nature, we will lose it.

    • Thank you!
      I’m doing what I can…I just wish I could get my boyfriend to understand. I have left patches of clover and dandelions untouched, only to have my boyfriend mow them down. 😦 I about cried

      • Awww. Yes, I understand how you feel. Most people sadly don’t understand. My goal is to educate. There are some great groups on Facebook. I recommend the group Pollinator Friendly Yards. You can get planting ideas and share some of the posts to make others aware. Perhaps something will touch your boyfriend’s heart.

      • I hope so, but I doubt it…he’s more concerned about the yard looking “neat”. And I have tried, believe me. I took the battery out of the mower last week, even though he didn’t do the last mow of the season. It’s just getting to late and too cold. Maybe we’ll see more praying mantis’, bees and other pollinators next year!
        On the other hand, I’m slowly digging up the “yard” and planting native plants to help the pollinators and cut down on the mowing.

      • Hahahaha. I love 💕 it. You actually sabotaged the lawnmower 😂. You’re my kinda girl. I think your strategy of slowly digging up the yard will work in your favor and his too. He won’t have to mow as much. Love that you’re going native too.
