While working at the Writer's Cottage I could hear buzzing. I didn't pay much attention since the garden is my neighbor yet my mind wandered so I went to sit on the stoop of the cottage and noticed a bee busy at work with our eggplants.
I could have returned to work and ignored this yet I was fascinated. The bee didn't care I was there and taking pictures. Hubby reminded me, "Remember you are allergic, you are getting kind of close, don't you think?" then smirked. He was right on all accounts yet it was a photo opportunity and a reason to take a break. A win-win!
Some fun Bee Facts:
"The most important thing that bees do is pollinate. Pollination is needed for plants to reproduce, and so many plants depend on bees or other insects as pollinators...Flowers that are visited more often by bees will produce larger and more uniform fruit than those visited less often..."

I didn't realize the more a flower is visited by a bee, the larger and more uniform its fruit. Writers are like bees, the more we visit writers' conferences, read in our genre, join a critique group, and write...the more uniform and successful are writing is I'm glad I took a few minutes to stop and watch this busy bee.
Two weeks later as I worked on this blog and researched the bee, I learned more than to slow down, I learned that the more we do to hone our craft, the better we will be. Cool concept when you think about it. It's available to all of us when we follow through and take time to visit all the different flowers in our field to make us the best ____ we hope to be.
