Don’t ask me why I photography berries, because I can’t tell you. Just know that when I come across wild berries, as I am out walking around, I enjoy photographing them.

Poetry: ~Sun Kissed Wings~

sun kissed wings, glistening bright

glimpses of movement within sight

~

honey bees flitting here, there

tiny beauties carrying pollen with skilled flair

~

bush to bush, flower to flower

working hard, hour by hour

~ 

busy they must be

pollination, a major key

~

purpose, transferring this golden essence

no life without the bees presence

~

pure honey, another miracle achieved

many gifts we receive

~

where do bees go, when day turns to twilight

a secret, a mystery of the night

I planted several Stonecrop plants along our driveway, because they are attractive, drought resistant and the bees love them. They are in full bloom and the Honey Bees are having a feast.
