My photographs...Mum's words......

My Mum is 81 towards the end of the year........her body is ageing but her mind is as bright as a button. I told her I would be uploading some bee photographs and asked her to write the words for me.......
This is a master piece.....
A special creation....
Very green and beautiful
And helped by the bees pollination.
Each tiny little flower....
To giant awesome trees.....
Somewhere in their make-up.....
Is the work of bees.

Thankful for these blessings.....
Special works of art.....
In which these special creatures......
Played a major part............
I know that my Mum enjoyed writing that, she loves to write........she says she forgets words now and gets muddled sometimes........she did well, I think...... and yes I did realise I uploaded the same photograph twice............my mind perhaps is more muddled than my mum's!!!!!!

Hi Cheryl

Love your bee photos! Have to confess - I like the fat furry bees the best as they are just so cute! They remind me a bit of our "Teddy Bear" bees; what do you call them? xx

Q said...

Dear Cheryl,
Your Mum is delightful!
Ahhh...beautiful bees.
Hugs to your Mum.
I sure miss mine.

You can tell her very nice words to accompany such nice pieces of nature captured for us to see.

You and your Mum make a great team. You should invite her to be a guest writer more often.

I just love the teasel with the bees on it. I have been meaning to tell you that I love this header picture and I get distracted by your beautiful posts.

Cheryl, now I know where you get some of your creativity. Your Mum's words were wonderful. You 2 should collaberate and do a book of nature pictures and poems to accompany them. I finally got a couple of good bee pictures today and hoping to get them up soon.

Cheryl said...

Thanks Beckie....I will relay your words to Mum, that will make her day...thank you.
Look forward to seeing your bee shots.....with anticipation.....any bee is a good bee for me.....

Great photos Cheryl and Mum!

I agree with Lisa, your header photo is beautiful. I see teasel along the roadside and didn't realize it had that misty blue bloom. Thank you, I learned something interesting today.

Cheryl said...

Roses and lilacs....I love the teasel it is a wonderful wildlife plant....bees, butterflies and birds all take interest in it at some point....

Rose said...

Cheryl, I didn't even notice the same picture:)
Your mother's poem is so beautiful and fits your photos perfectly. Tell her we'd like to read more of her writing!

Cheryl said...

Hi Rose......Mum will be so pleased to hear that....I will see if I can talk her into doing a little more.....

I think your Mum captured the essence of your photos so well and I thought it was quite moving and very special Cheryl. Big hugs to your Mum xxx And now I know where YOU get it from. You are such a lovely bunch, I could hug you all xxxx Ooops forgot to say that the last post you did was fabulous, especially the tiger lily and cardoon. Stunning xxxxx

Wendy said...

Oh I loved that!!! Your mom did so well. It's good that you are involving her in your work. It must make her feel so good, needed and proud of her daughter!

I must confess I didn't notice the duplicate photo. Probably thought it was a different angle of the same flower.

Hi Cheryl. Your mum has a way with words (like mother, like daughter, eh). Superb images - it must be wonderful to sit out in your garden with all that beauty and wild life activity. Am so glad the sun has come to visit too.

(Have just discovered there is a bee centre outside Jerez, so will arrange a trip and take pics for you)

Cheryl said...

Hi Dawny......tku for the comments, Mum will be so pleased....I love the cardoon to, it is such an enormous plant....have a lovely weekend....

Cheryl said...

You have just made my Mum's day Wendy....I will tell her all that you said.....

Cheryl said...

Hi Ladyluz...tku re Mum....messages will be passed onto her, that will give her a lift....

Can't wait to see bee photos....
