Garden Bloggers' Muse... Busy As A Bee

I've been busy as a bee!

For Garden Bloggers' Muse Day, I offer the first few lines of an old poem written by the Hoosier poet, James Whitcomb Riley.

The Bumblebee

You better not fool with a Bumblebee! --
Ef you don't think they can sting -- you'll see!
They're lazy to look at, an' kind o' go
Buzzin' an' bummin' aroun' so slow...

Thanks, Carol, that was very a-musing.

I have never yet had a bumblebee sting. I have trimmed, watered, weeded and such around the same flower a bumblebee was working on and never had an issue. It's a very different bee than a yellow jacket.

I love that they are busy, focused and still harmless (as far as I can tell).

Now that's my kind of poem; short, sweet and to the point! ;-)
