Vibrant

dsc_0197

Various colours come together

In union to

Bring a smile to peoples faces

Rainbows of bright

And brilliant shades come together

Note how the primaries of red, blue and yellow merge and

Transform into the secondaries  of Orange, Green and Purple

Manchester Bee

Brightening up my day

Each time i pass them by

Every single one – has a character

If you don’t know what i’m talking about

Now – where have you been ?

DSC_0189

They’ve occupied their little

Hives all summer

Each giving those who pass them – a reason to smile

DSC_0043

Children and adults all

Investigate with maps

Trailing around the county – and occasionally

Yelling — “I FOUND ONE!”

Creating a buzz

4th September 2018

#Beeinthecity #Manchester #Buzz

A poem in honour of those colourful bees currently nesting in my city

The hive will be in Gtr Manchester till 23rd September – it’s well worth a visit.

(for those who haven’t read my #beeinthecity posts – they’re artworks!)

Banks-B , #Beeinthecity on Manchester’s Market Street

The hive arrived
Home for some bees
With artistic flair

Swarming around
City streets, with a
Hint of colour

Covering the sights
Of the county
North to south

Bringing smiles
From Salford’s quayside
To Manchester’s airport

Captured in his own little Garden at Manchester’s Museum of Science and Industry, Industrious

Busy little bee sits in his own little world

Among flowers and scents and colour

working over the flower beds

where the people wait for the train

industrious little fellow he is

Colourful Swarm

brought out of the hive

everyone is smiling at them…

each one bringing colour to the street

DSC_0205

if you walk  through the city, you’ll see

numbers of them by

DSC_0196

the terraced areas of the city, their

hive now used by the residents to soak up the sun

each bee happy of the attention they get

Congregated in well known areas, the

Insects bring a smile to

Those who pass by,

Yelling to the youngsters – “You al’right our kid” ?

#beeinthecity #Manchester #Bee #Travel #art

“We’re going on a bee hunt”….Winnie-the-Pooh in Manchester,  July 2018

I took myself off on a Metrolink today, on the search for more Bees on the #Beesinthecity trail

The tram took me into Manchesters centre…but i stopped at Manchester Central where i spotted the first of my city bees

All of the photographs were taken in the city centre with my Nikon D3100….enjoy!
