1114. The hum of the bees is the voice of the garden. ~Elizabeth Lawrence

The bee collects honey from flowers
in such a way as to do the least
damage or destruction to them,
and he leaves them whole, undamaged
and fresh, just as he found them.
~Saint Francis de Sales

A garden spot may be a noisy place
Where droning bees seek honey,
Spiders weave their silver lace upon the trees,
And little birds sing songs the livelong day.

Or it may be so silent that is seems
The flowers sleep, and shy
Mysterious virgin dreams their vigil keep,
And God communes with earth all day.
~Pringle Barret

Eat honey, my son, for it is good; honey from the comb is sweet to your taste. ~Proverbs 24:13  ✝

  1. It is indeed a hive of activity as it were 🙂
    And it is amazing to what one uncovers, notices and finds…which is really part of the adventure of working in the yard—even those harder hearts who are merely working in the drudgery of it all…are more than not, pleasantly surprised….and I seem to be going to be before your posts so I’m missing them until the following morning—I am continuing to be a day late and a dollar short 🙂
