A merry heart maketh a cheerful countenance...Proverbs 15: 13

Blossoms don't for-e'er last
Which is why the bees move fast
Working hard to pollinate.
None of them can wait
Nor put off til' tomorrow...
Today is of the essence.
There is no time to borrow.
But they do not tarry..
The gifts of their presence
Brings beauty to carry
From the art
Of a merry heart.
Poetry by me AJP

I dedicate this page to Susan Littlefield who gives so much pleasure
from the treasures of her bee art and her heart. Thank you Susan for
your dedication and hard work. Thank you so much for the spotlight!!!
