Bumblebee with white flower pollen



This bumblebee was so rude,

His or her behind facing outwards,

Entrenched deep into the blossom.

White pollen dusting its yellow

and black stripes.

In my  five years of blogging,

I have met numerous dear

friends who have “grandies,”

which is an affectionate way

of labeling grandchildren.

Using a sense of humor to notice

in white flower bloom, there’s

a bee’s “bum” covered with pollen.

Kids find this amusing and silly! 

There are a long list of words

as a Nana, I have learned

to “never” say in front of

those “listening ears!”

Those inquiring

minds are on 

the lookout!

The other 

words for


are ones

you may have

to find





You are to me ~

the bee’s knees!

Thanks, everyone who show

patience in my tardy replies

and my late arrivals to

your lovely posts.

Wasp on pink hibiscus flower



This pink flowered bush is on the

border of an alley which we walk

all the time between my apartment

and the St. Mary’s playground.

The rain burst into tears

like a typical summer




Wasps are almost as

important as bees, in their

spreading pollen from

flower to flower.

Beetle in the raindrops flower



This is the week of nature,

bugs, flying and crawling,

farm scene, thistles and weeds.

I like having a “focus” so it just

doesn’t seem aimless in

poetic or thoughtful

words and photos.

Let me know at the

end of the week,

if anything





~ the week in this

case is 8/9 – 8/16 ~

as my dear grandson

jokes to his older

brother, “You aren’t

the Boss of me!”

So, if you don’t


thanks for

I cannot resist

reminding you

of two of my favorite songs,

“Raindrops Keep Falling on My Head”

by B.J. Thomas, 1969. This was

background scene song from

when Paul Newman is

riding a bicycle in the

film, “Butch Cassidy and

the Sundance Kid.”

“Rain” by the Beatles, 1966.

This is considered the strongest

“B” side label song, written by

John Lennon, Paul McCartney.

The “A” side was

“Paperback Writer.”

Awhile back I blogged

about seasonal subjects

of rain, rainy, storm and

stormy weather.
