This week the challenge from Julia was to include "There's a real buzz about this place." in a piece of writing not to exceed 100 words.
I am trying to complete the campnanowrimo for the first time- I have got to 20000 words but hit a bit of a wall at the moment.
Never written that much before and thought I would see if I could manage the challenge! Have until the end of the month so some time left yet.
When I saw the prompt I couldn't think beyond bees so here is a little rhyme in their honour. I adore honey (am a real fan of manuka honey and firmly believe that it is a real health supplement as well as being delicious - far more palatable than fish oils; yuk!)
Thank you for reading :)

To-ing and fro-ing with hardly ever a break
Their tiny wings humming as they fly busily around.
Collecting pollen from flowers for the honey they’ll make.
Just stand still and listen to the summer-time sound!
Nurses, guards, workers, housekeepers , royal attendants.
Honeybees improve the environment and prey not on any other.
All working together and communicating through dance
Their stings only used if they’re in a spot of bother!
There’s a real buzz about this place;
United, harmonious, team players, all taking care of each other
From them much could be learned to help the human race.
The humble honeybee is a splendid creature unlike any other.
