This is an excellent poem and brings back memories.

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:

    LIKE LIKE LIKE LIKE LIKE

    • 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.

This blog documents the genealogy and the arrivqal of the Buehler Family out of Ansbach, Germany, who became the Biller family of Shenandoah Coyunty and Barbour County, West Virginia. It documents the research that I have done to establish the genealogy of the Buehlers' line that arrived out Ansbach. This is the direct line of my sisters and brothers that orginated from Johann Christof Buehler. The spelling of Buehler was changed somethime around 1786 to Biller.
