i take my cup

begin picking raspberries

could bees, would bees

should bees, can’t bees

must bees and never bees

buzzing all around

the tour guide was right

  1. I just finished camping out in your blog. I read every post you have here except the reblogged posts. Now I’m off to check the reblogged posts to see if I like them enough to follow their writers.

    Looks like I would have left you 25 LIKES if you had a LIKE button on your posts. Since you don’t, I’ll just have to do it this way:

    • Hi,
      Thank you very much. I am very sorry about the likes. I am still learning WordPress and just find out this morning that I had accidentally, out of my ignorance of WordPress, turned it off. It is now on.
      Once again, thank you for visiting, and you are welcomed back anytime. I love your pictures and plan to use a few in some of my own blogs and give you the recognition for the pictures posted.
      Have a good day.
      Ciao,
      Patricia

  2. Yep, except my kids and me picked huckleberries which made great pies. What’s a bee sting or two with that in the making? Love, Micki

  3. To bee or not to bee, that is the question. Blackberries and Mulberrys are my favs. A nice poem to reblog Patricia.
    Cheers
    Laurie.
