A POEM A DAY - BUMBLE BEE



The walk around the Muntanyeta at the Marjal was as peaceful and refreshing as ever. However the route is not looking its prettiest. The banks and reed beds have been shorn and on a dull day the cut cane gave an overwhelming paleness to the scene. Look a little closer and there is change. Gorse flowers are hinting yellow, pussy willow buds turned from white to green in a week and bees were buzzing all over the tiny buds. A week ago the greed buds of this plant were tightly shut. A week later the onion weed was open and this bumble bee was buzzing around. The silky looking stamen looked like onion but I didn't get close enough to see if it had a smell.
