Bumble Bees

I am thinking about them today. The sun is shining in the window by my work desk urging me to make plans for spring and summer. It's a welcome distraction while the snowbanks slowly recede. So it has me started on a new little project and lead me down the rabbit hole that is the internet! I found this lovely blog about all things bees, read some posts and enjoyed some poetry. Emily Dickinson wrote a lot about bees!  
                                                            "The pedigree of honey
Does not concern the bee;
A clover, any time, to him
Is aristocracy."
Emily Dickinson, Poems (V)

So here's my flashback to summer in the garden and a busy bumble bee with pollen on his knees!
