Look at the size of the bumble bees arm. I was coming around the road-bend last evening when I saw a swarm of giant bumble bees on these flowers that were growing on a wall. The bumble-bees adored this particular branch. There were other variety of flowering branches nearby, but they were only interested in these corn-shaped ones.I had previously tried to get clear focused one of this delicate flower and continually failed. So was pleased when this one turned out not to be blurred.
The flowers (like the rest of us) need a helping hand sometimes to hold them together. The criss crossed bars remind me of corrugated iron bars (with legs) that were brought together and hessian sack cloth’s placed into them to make camp beds. They were the kind of makeshift beds Goldenbridge children slept in for the duration of the summer months in Rathdrum holiday home. The sack cloths invariably tore and there was no reprieve – they still had to make do.
