WordPress wrote to me yesterday, to tell me that 3 September 2013 marked the 3rd anniversary of Poetic Mapping. This is blog no. 222. This is quite by accident. If you believe in accidents, that is. The anniversary is a good excuse to post a shot of an exquisite flower with exquisite bee. I took this in Pines Gardens, St Margaret’s Bay, Kent last week, having walked there from Kingsdown across a stretch of the White Cliffs of Dover. And back again. The lovely lady who delivers my organic veggies every week came today. I told her of the walk. She delivers to St Margaret’s Bay, she said and commented, “That was a long walk!” I hadn’t noticed.
I was fascinated by the bee’s wings, which are as purple as the globe artichoke flower it is feeding from.
It is now 222 am.
