Take time to smell the roses and eventually you’ll inhale a bee. ~Author unknown
There once was a bee who did think
From flowers he could steal a long drink.
He chose one and got busy
But left in a tizzy
Without siphoning any of the pink.
Note: This poetic form is Limerick (which I haven’t written in a long time!)
Well done, Debbie! I read this while having my morning coffee today and it instantly put a smile on my face!
So clever you are with words. And the photo you captured is gorgeous. Beautiful colors!
Have a super Sunday, my friend! X
Oh, I’m so glad this made you smile, Ron — thank you for telling me! Irish girl ought to be able to write a Limerick now and then, shouldn’t she?!?
Enjoy your weekend. We’re awaiting a cold front — which, I hope, will chase away all this mugginess!! xx
I love limericks, and sometimes they just come to mind. I can’t remember ever setting out to write one, but an occasional rhyme will get me going. This is a fun one — and look at those flowers! So pretty: and it looks as though there still are buds to keep the color coming.
You know, Linda, I’ve never planted Zinnias before, but I’ve found them extremely rewarding. They just keep blooming and growing as if they’re on a mission or something! And yes, those are definitely buds so I can look forward to more of this glorious pink!
They will keep growing and blooming. They were a mainstay of my grandmother’s cutting garden. Every Sunday in summer, they were one of the flowers I’d cut for our Sunday dinner table.
What a sweet memory! Thank you for sharing it. And for the encouragement — I really didn’t know what to expect from zinnias. Must be beginner’s luck!
Tee-hee! A busy bee in a tizzy.
Glad you enjoyed it, Laurie. I suspect Mr. Bee didn’t mind posing for a photo, as long as I didn’t disturb his meal!
Good limerick, Debbie. Great photo too.
Thank you, my friend. I’m blushing at the lovely words of praise!
Thanks, Dawn — glad you enjoyed it!
Hehe, nice limerick, Debbie, and good to see you back! Hope you had a lovely visit with your son. 😀
Thanks for the praise, FF! Yes, we had a great time — of course, there’s now a little Monkey who’s awfully sad to see the FUN leave … but I keep reminding him Domer will be back (just not any time soon, sigh!)
I love your witty limerick, Debbie! And it goes so well with the photo. The busy and tizzy rhyme is wonderful! 🐝
Oh, I’m so happy you liked it … and that you let me know!
