A day in the life

By Shelling


I haven't left home all day so todays blip will have to be a garden picture. My garden is very old and this is my first summer here så I discover new plants all the time. Close ups with my iPhone works better than I thought when trying a close up on a bumble bee collecting nectar from a Blue Ball Thistle. It gets all messy in its fur by all the pollen from the flower while gathering the sweetstuff from inside each little flower that makes up the entire ball. Very neat and well tested over thousands of years. I wonder if they notice me at all, they don't seem to, they're totally absorbed by their work. I'm not for another couple of weeks so, for now I'm enjoying each day as much as I can.
