Close Up: A Bee and Its Shadow

bee and shadow

A somnolent bee in my pathway let me examine it close up as it crawled slowly off the stones, with some very mild encouragement from myself, as it looked vulnerable where it was. This seems to have been  grand year for the bees, and at last the buddleias on Nun’s Walk are hosting clouds of  butterflies. My wildflower bed, from looking just like unweeded ground, has suddenly sprung into life, and has almost swallowed up the bird-table. This beautifully-accoutred bee, however, was down near the Tweed, on the English side, on what I think of as the Norham Path; though I would have to walk all day to get to Norham itself.
