honeybees in the trumpet vine.

For bees, the flower is the fountain of life;
For flowers, the bee is the messenger of love.

— Kahlil Gibran

When the bee comes to your house, let her have beer; 
you may want to visit the bee's house some day. 
— Congo Proverb

Even bees, the little almsmen of spring bowers, know there is richest juice in poison-flowers.
 —John Keats

Messengers of love... I LOVE that.
My name is Hebrew for 'bee', and I've always been very fond of bees.
Still waiting for Spring here.... :)

Of course I love every bit of this post, I makes me long for warm sunny days and the hum of my own bees. :) Miss you girl. Your photos are amazing I can almost feel the heat.

What, no hummingbirds? They adore trumpet vines...gotta get out the shears for those voracious vines, though, once pollination is done!
