Reverie - n. a state of being pleasantly lost in one's thoughts; a daydream or fantasy; a visionary or impractical idea

"To make a prairie it takes a clover and one bee,—
One clover, and a bee,
And revery.

The revery alone will do
If bees are few." - Emily Dickinson

Somewhere, Bees Are Flying...

On this cloudy, drizzly Oregon day it feels appropriate to post some pictures of bees flying in the sunshine, gathering nectar and pollen from exotic sources.  My bees are clustered inside their hive, thinking how tired of they are of pollen patties and dampness.  I won't show them these pictures. 
Above, a bee pollinating a large banana flower.
 Seductive orange blossoms...

  A large black sweat bee on Rosemary....

 Sabal palmetto inflorescences.  Palmetto honey is exquisite - sweet and spicy.

Roses blooming - in early March.
