So far I’ve seen 3 bees in our garden and they have been huge! I’ve learned the scientific name today: Bombus hortorum. What a great name. Sounds like a Harry Potter character and rather befits such a large, scruffy being I think. Don’t be fooled by the fact it bobs around and looks quite dozy…
The penultimate day of the KAL and I’d like to recommend to you two cute, ‘dipping into and out of’ books. When you are feeling in need of some coziness they are a good reference point.
Spring wouldn’t be Spring without a daffodil or a poem about them!
‘Lamb’ was a very popular Spring word you gave me. It got me thinking about all the usual lambs depicted at this time of year. The cute fluffy white ones, the occasional white one with a black face, the ones on cards and as soft toys. So then I thought, when was the last time…
In my collection of children’s books there are some well thumbed Beatrix Potter books. One story is about an impertinent squirrel who goes by the name of Nutkin. He is always getting into scrapes with Old Brown owl. I recall he is particularly fond of acorns, stashing them for winter food.
‘Primrose’ appeared often as one of your favourite Spring words. They are a small but beautiful beneficial plant. A super food for butterflies.
