Monday Morning #Haiku 158-160 — Foxgloves & Bees

Bumblebee size bells
Buzzing instead of ringing
Musical foxgloves
Bees drift somnolent
Bindweed climbs up foxglove stems
Gardener unwinds
Bees cart pollen home
Empty tubular bell blooms
Become pixie hats

    1. Dear Rochelle,

      I thought the best way to start the week, was to focus on beauty πŸ™‚ In fact, it left me so inspired that I managed my first publisher submission in 3 years. Will tell you more when we speak, hopefully this week as my internet seems to be behaving itself. And long may it last!

      All best wishes,

  1. Ahh…gorgeous pixie hats! Love your foxgloves dearest Sarah…and the bees too off course, and your haiku…I don’t have foxgloves this year, mine never survive into the next spring and I didn’t plant any because of selling up. So thank you for sharing yours πŸ™‚ xxxx

    1. Thank you, dearest Sherri πŸ™‚ As we hadn’t had any success with growing foxgloves from seeds, we planted foxglove plants (I don’t remember when, though; whether it was earlier this year or late last year). They were good healthy ones that were for sale in the allotment shop. I’m hoping that they’ll survive into next year, as they’re in a nice sheltered position with just the right amount of light and shade. I’ve had some before in another garden and they came up year after year. Perhaps you can try some in your new garden, so all those bees can have a party! πŸ™‚ xxxx

      1. Oh Sarah, I hope yours last for years and years. I’ve always planted mine from plants but I don’t think they get enough shade and the other more shady part has too much shade it seems. As you say, perhaps in the new garden – anything for the bees! The good news though is my purple scabias are flowering beautifully and the bees have a rave with those! πŸ˜‰ Happy gardening my dear friend… love and hugs πŸ™‚ xxxx
