This ivy bush is noisy today. It smells sweet and it is lively with bees and wasps. It is full of many little flowers. They are not brightly coloured but they attract the insects – for their honey and pollen. Winter is coming – there’s a need of hoarded food. Honey gives energy and pollen contains protein. Does this bee have a yellow leg? No. There’s a basket on her back leg; it’s full of pollen. It’s a pollen sac. She has a little comb for the pollen as well. Yellow (or orange) is today’s colour. I made yellow jam – with apples, lemons, ginger, sugar – and one pear (half my crop!). My friend’s horse is wearing orange slippers – very comfortable for stony ground.
