Dreaming of bees and flowers and things....



Bee I am expecting you!
Was saying Yesterday
To Somebody you know,
That you were due.

The Frogs got Home last week,
Are settled, and at work.
Birds mostly back,
The Clover warm and thick.

You'll get my letter  by
 The seventeenth; Reply
Or better, be with me
Yours, Fly.


 by 
Emily Dickinson

Your photos look so inviting Denise and bring hopes of spring as another coating of snow graces the landscape here. Hopefully the bees and blooms will be here soon!

Lois said...

Lovely pictures and I enjoyed the poem. Thanks for sharing!

Ginny said...

What a cute poem! And then at the end to see it was a love letter written by a fly! Yum, maybe bees for dinner? I have never seen a bee house!!! Is it yours? Your picture of the bee on the flower is wonderful!!! I can see his big eyes, wonder if he can see that flower? I bet he can, since bees are drawn to certain colors.

And thanks for the tip about making cake flour.

What a lovely poem! Here in the UK, bees are now on the wing, by some sort of national agreement!

A fitting poem, and I love that little bee house. I've never seen one.

This is such a sweet poem. We sure need more bees in Hawaii to pollinate all our flowers.
