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 ?

They’ve occupied their little

Hives all summer

Each giving those who pass them – a reason to smile

Children and adults all

Investigate with maps

Trailing around the county – and occasionally

Yelling — “I FOUND ONE!”

Honeycomb Ii

Manchester, 11th august

 

#beeinthecity #manchester #hunnypot

 

six sided structure

created by worker bees

for the colony

 

sleeping in their nest

little bees dream of honey

from flowers next door

 

Travelling over air

homing pigeons cannot beat

worker bees radar

 

treasures collected

from inside the flower head

create a sweet thing

 

flavour from pollen

transferred to golden slices

by the hunnypot

Off on another Bee Hunt

Manchester 26th July 2018

#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!

Bringing a buzz to the neighbourhood!

You’re precious to all,

Shining in the sunlight,

Magpie’s swoop at the sight of you

whilst Men seek out the places you play hide and seek

Not as hard as Iron your qualities valued up and down the land

formed to create a union Very hard to break

Bumblebees strive to create from the pollen they catch

something similar in the garden that match your wonderful colour

And Athletes meet up at great venues around the blue marble

for a chance that their hard work will have you resting around their necks
