Mark Addison Smith, You gotta think about who you’re attracting (from the daily You Look Like The Right Type series), digital print: 9″ x 13″, August 22, 2013
The buzz of bees, the chirping of birds, vibrantly colored flowers, and green tender shoots pushing up from barren ground are dreamed of promises during these cold winter months. Rest assured, spring will come again, and with it:
Brush up on bee lore, botanical illustration, nest building techniques, avian husbandry, honey hunting or ornithological sleights of hand. What might it all mean? Waggle dances? Colony Collapse disorder?
BUT then again-
Maybe it’s all just about LOVE, SWEET LOVE!
