Sunday 29 May 2011: The Only Reason for Being a Bee
"First of all he said to himself: "That buzzing-noise means something. You don't get a buzzing-noise like that, just buzzing and buzzing, without its meaning something. If there's a buzzing-noise, somebody's making a buzzing-noise, and the only reason for making a buzzing-noise that I know of is because you're a bee."
Then he thought another long time, and said: "And the only reason for being a bee that I know of is making honey."
And then he got up, and said: "And the only reason for making honey is so as I can eat it." So he began to climb the tree
He climbed and he climbed and he climbed and as he climbed he sang a little song to himself. It went like this:
Isn't it funny
How a bear likes honey?
Buzz! Buzz! Buzz!
I wonder why he does?"
- Winnie the Pooh
Herewith another entry for this week's temptation challenge. Like Pooh, I heard a buzzing, and decided the only reason for said buzzing was bees. I however, went for my camera instead of their hunny. ;-)
This Golden Wattle grows just outside our front gate, and has just come into bloom - tempting many bees. The kids and I spent a nice chunk of time looking at the bees, and Miss 5 and I discussing pollination.
