Day Seventeen

The theme for Becky’s  April Squares challenge is ‘top’ 

    1. On Top of the World – summit, crown, peak or uppermost part of something
    2. Under the Big Top – topping or covering (or if you’re really lucky circus)
    3. Room at the Top – first or highest in position
    4. Cherry on Top – something made even more wonderful by becoming square
    5. Top and Tail – or maybe you’d prefer to play around with word combinations such as top dog, top stitch, top full, top line, top fruit, top hat, top secret, top knot, top drawer and top dollar!

Red-tailed bumblebee (Bombus lapidarius) feeding on three-cornered leek (snow bell or onion weed). It can be found in gardens, farmland, woodland edges, hedgerows and heathland: anywhere there are flowers to feed on. It is a social bee, nesting in old burrows, or under stones.

I have lived in the UK for most of my life, but when young I definitely had wanderlust and even ended up living in South Africa for several years which was a wonderful experience. I now look forward to a long and leisurely retirement doing what I like most - gardening, photography, walking and travelling.

  1. I don’t remember ever seeing so many bumblebees. I can only imagine that the lack of pollution is allowing more to survive.
    Best wishes, Pete. x

    1. We have had some horrid pollution here from Europe over the weekend. Gave me conjunctivitis from an allergic reaction. Everything covered in dust. I hope the rain will have washed it all away!

    1. Not many butterflies yet though. I have only seen a couple of Whites and maybe one other that zoomed past so fast I couldn’t tell what it was.

        1. I hope so. I didn’t see many in my garden last year either despite specifically growing bee and butterfly flowers.

  2. Not just your comments, chuck! I had to come hunting for this post, just because I knew there’d ‘bee’ one! And very nice it is 🙂 🙂
