Oh if only this ‘buzzing’ referred to wild parties, drinks and dancing. It does not.
Instead I refer to the massive honey bees of Alameda Botantic Gardens. The Alameda Botanic Gardens is a place where I spent a lot of time this weekend, poking around the flowers to try and find a) insects to photograph and b) persuade a butterfly to pose for me (no such luck) and c) get a bit of sun.
The bees were out in force. Such lovely creatures. And so interesting to watch them go about their business.
The gardens were busy, full of tourists, and local people making the most of the sunshine. One thing did disappoint me though, the amount of litter everywhere. These gardens are tended to so carefully, and they are so beautiful, and we are so lucky to have them to walk through free of charge, so when I see people dumping bottles in the pond, crisps packets in bushes and other bits of plastic and junk along paths it makes me furious. Show some respect for your local area. Who behaves like that when there are bins everywhere? It’s like they are making a special effort to ruin the environment. End of rant. Use bins. Littering is for losers.
