As we wandered along the North Saskatchewan River towards and through Riverdale, we were amazed at the work being done by all the pollinators. Flowers (including weeds) were everywhere and the bees, butterflies and moths were hard at work. Now we know what “busy as a bee” means.
Busy as a Bee
Lured by perfumed petals too sweet to refuse,
they flit and flutter with such wild abandon.
Vibrant pinks, whites, yellows, purples and blues,
colours Mother Nature had a hand in.
They don’t tarry long on petals they choose,
just hover low, without really landing.
Back and forth to their hive they quickly cruise,
these busy bees have no time for standing.
