A change from pictures of MasterB in undignified poses tonight. These flowers and budding cherries are all in our garden and I took the photographs yesterday while hoping my boy would climb the tree.
I love this time of year.
I read the other day that the NFU has reapplied for a licence to use an insecticide that kills bees in the UK.
That just doesn’t add up to me. Kill bees, you kill plants, you kill us.
Why would anyone knowingly spray plants with poisons that will kill such a key creature in our survival?
But they do. In parts of the UK agriculture is as far removed from the small family run farms of my youth as they could be.
For some people short term profits will always be more important than the long term outcomes of their actions.
Sometimes I don’t think human beings, for all their amazing abilities and undeniable intelligence, are very clever.
Life v financial gain. Seems a pretty simple decision to me.
Maybe that’s why my bank account is not gold plated.
On the other hand, I do have the flowers.
