Bees do have a smell, you know, and if they don’t they should, for their feet are dusted with spices from a million flowers. – Ray Bradbury, Dandelion Wine
“According to all known laws of aviation, there is no way that a bee should be able to fly. Its wings are too small to get its fat little body off the ground. The bee, of course, flies anyways. Because bees don’t care what humans think is impossible.
– Mary Kay Ash
I was chased Friday evening on the way to my car by a vicious red flash that barked at me and didn’t slow down when I stamped my feet and yelled.
My first thought was “rabid squirrel!!”
So I hightailed it straight back in the house.
Once I sufficiently embarrassed myself, I started to wonder if it was one of the babies from a nest in the back. I must have terrified it!
We found it hunkered down behind a garbage a can, shaking from the adrenaline rush.
Sunday afternoon, I watched one unsuccessfully tying to climb the porch post. Its legs were shaky and unsteady, and nearly shook him right off the railing. His feet were too big for his body, and he awkwardly lowered himself, sliding more than climbing really, to the ground. Later, I heard scuttling and barking again at ground level, so I cautiously peeked over the railing to find, not one, but 3 babies!
Sometimes, the smallest things take up the most room in your heart.
I love tulips better than any other spring flower; they are the embodiment of alert cheerfulness and tidy grace…
I have heard them called bold and flaunting, but to me they seem modest grace itself, only always on the alert to enjoy life as much as they can and not be afraid of looking the sun or anything else above them in the face.”
I shall always remember how the peacocks’ tails shimmered when the moon rose amongst the tall trees, and on the shady bank the emerging mermaids gleamed fresh and silvery amongst the rocks… ―
