To Make a Prairie by Emily Dickinson

My Wisteria in Spring---breakfast for a fat, hungry bumble bee.

To Make a Prairie
By Emily Dickinson

To make a prairie it takes a clover and one bee,
one clover, and a bee.
And revery.
The revery alone will do,
if bees are few.

You're welcome, sweet Erin. xo

Ben, I have tons more stuff to post, too. LOL! I took 500 photos this summer of my flowers, dragonflies and butterflies. They love being models for me. xo

I used to put wisteria blossoms on salads. Then, I read that they were poisonous, so I stopped.

Very, very nice selection! Love the picture of your wisteria and the bumble bee. Gorgeous!

It makes things seem so minimal and simple, doesn't it? Just one bee. Just one clover. One prayer. One kiss. One revelation.
