The blackberries are in full bloom now.
Whilst I was having a rest in the shade beside the bush, Haiku kun the cat on my lap, there was a constant humming...








lazy afternoon -
the sound of the bees and
the butterflies

.. .. .. summer flowers -
.. .. .. not knowing your names
.. .. .. do I know less ?



花の名を知らぬが仏の。あ。た。し。かな

.. .. .. .. ..

Santoka has a similar haiku about not knowing things.

................. 何が何やらみんな咲いてゐる

What they are -
I don't know.
But they're all blooming.

ガビさま
 人が黄泉の国へ旅発つときは花畑を通っていくとか。
人は皆、神の愛子、仏の子ですものね。

I enjoyed the photographs and particularly liked the “do I know less” haiku.

What a wonderful summer post. Every since I heard that honey bees have been vanishing I started enjoying them more. These are lovely flowers.
