Nature's Place

After The Rains …

What nature provides in the aftermath, to those who adapt and can see.

… everything gets on with it, everything that’s left.

This honey bee appeared between downpours and found a little nourishment.

Amazing in all the debris, and that everything was washed away, it stopped for a couple shots.

A little welcome to the new place that hasn’t had a chance to register the changes I’ve made to the garden.

Maybe next year, if I’m still here – who knows what may be – in a place that’s weathered the worst downpours in decades.

The owner is working hard to ensure the place is ready for worse to come, and so much else is good about the place, why not.

If things work out I might soon have the space and dry to work and get some of my bees to market this year –

We’ll see …

      Thanks Katie, much appreciated. It seems the bees have now found the birdbath too. But that’s for another post. :-)

    Sorry to hear that you’ve been affected by the floods, Mark. I hope you, your neighbours and your small visitors encounter pleasant, restorative weather over the following months.

      After the rains there is usually an explosion of life, that the water has nourished as well as submerged. We got away with it this time, the water largely passed me by, though the property owner works hard to keep the place safe – readied now for next year.

      Thanks Tracy.

      Indeed Laura. Not just a maker of honey for the market. But a little beauty, to the eye that sees.
