  1. Sounds fab. Great picture.

    Great Granny!

    It's easy being slightly smug when you've climbed a hill. Makes it more worthwhile somehow.

    Sounds like a great day. A cider in the pub at the end of the day would be perfect after that.

  2. And it is all about the journey, isn't it? Sounds like a lovely day and worthy accomplishment. I've found that most of the time it's really best not to know how tough the road ahead will be.

  3. I know my own life has been enhanced by carefully cultivated ignorance. Onward!

  4. I smile and realise that I'm brighter than I used to be.

    that you are. =)

  5. The question "Would I have begun, had I known?" is very relevant if thinking about it inspires us to climb more hills. But of course you knew that.

  6. A day filled with wonder... what more could one ask for? May you always find your pockets filled with gold just like the bumblebees.

  7. Hey Alistair! Yes, she was a remarkable and mysterious lady, as documented here ( But no, sadly no pubs!

    Hey Jayne! I used to think it was good to plan and be prepared, but these days I find it more fun to respond and adapt. And there's all those roses to smell, right?

    Hey Murr! I salute you on many fronts, ma'am!

    Hey Eolist! I'm not so sure at times, but thank you for the vote of confidence =)

    Hey Blised-Out! I think it's easy to be intimidated by difficult tasks, but recognition of their completion helps to build a pattern of success that builds confidence. And yes, more hills are attempted!

    Hey Boom Boom! That's a lovely sentiment, thank you. And yeah, some days are full of surprises.

    Thanks one and all! Indigo

  8. In my humble opinion, this was your best piece to date!

    I loved this! I felt like I was transported there myself :)

    I especially loved the title...I respect and am in awe of bumble bees too!

  9. Hey Kato! Seriously? Wow, that's quite a special thing you just said. I think that transportation is a huge compliment to any writer, so thank you - I'll happily accept the compliment! Indigo x

  10. Yet again you have inspired me to get tapping at the keys, I read this yesterday and decided to continue a story I had hit a brick wall with, but thanks to your lovely writing style it's got some life back in it :)

  11. I would love to be able to fly. The good news is that my size would hopefully deter any predators from attacking, and yet still be small enough to avoid radar detection. Just need to pay attention for passing aircraft.

  12. Hey Joshua, some of the big Scottish eagles (one of which starred recently as Gwaihir in LOTR) would eat you for breakfast. You are saved only by geography. Indigo

  13. Oh, Indigo. Sometimes you're so smart. Would love to take this kind of rambling walk -- and to make the connections that you have.

    p.s. And your grandma was/is right about the bumblebees.

  14. Hey Pearl! Thanks for the vote of confidence. Sometimes I am, tho nowhere near as often as I like to think. I'm more of a half-man/half-donkey arrangement. Like Eddie Murphy. Indigo x
