ABC Wednesday ~ 19Z

Round 19-z

My 124th entry – bijdrage

Started-Gestart: 28-08-2014 : 15-G

Hello and good morning, -afternoon, -evening, dear people who all participate is this wonderful photo-meme, which is a joy to me, week after week, after week. I’m always curious to what you come up with!

The challenging letter of this week is the Z
And I’ve chosen for the word Zealous

Although I am not that big a fan of insects, they do have a very important task in their life, being part of our evolution. Not being a fan does not mean that I can not appreciate them for what they do, how hard they work, relentlessly, so also very zealous.
I love honey, the organic versions of course. Just a little bit in a cup of tea!
Thankfully I live in quit a rural area although it being a capital city of a province, just a few minutes by car from my home, I find myself in wonderful forests or little villages in which beekeepers live who make it with the help of countless little zealous friends. I am grateful for their hard work and enjoy their products.

How about you? Are you like bees and zealous or?

Have ave a nice ABC-Wednesday-day / – week ~

Hallo en goedemorgen, -middag, -avond aan alle (niet)-deelnemers aan deze leuke foto-uitdaging. Elke week weer een groot plezier omdat ik altijd nieuwsgierig uitkijk naar waar men mee komt.

De uitdagende letter van deze week is de Z
en ik koos voor het woord ijverig (helaas geen z-woord in de vertaling)

Alhoewel ik geen fan ben van insecten, integendeel zelfs zou ik willen zeggen, hebben zij toch een heel belangrijke taak in hun leven, deel van onze evolutie zijnde. Dat ik geen fan ben betekent overigens niet dat ik die kleine creatuurtjes niet waardeer voor wat zij doen, hoe hard ze werken, onophoudelijk, heel heel heel erg ijverig.  Neem nou honing, de biologische versie uiteraard, simpelweg een klein beetje in de thee!
Gelukkig woon ik vrij landelijk, ook al is dat dan in een provincie hoofdstad. Enkele minuten met de auto van huis weg bevind ik me in prachtige bossen en kleine dorpjes waarin imkers wonen die met behulp van hun ontelbare ijverige vriendjes die honing maken.
Dankbaar ben ik dus echt wel voor die ‘samenwerking’ tussen mens en dier en geniet ik enorm van hun producten.

En jij? Ben jij ook zo ijverig als een bij of?

Heb een fijne ABC-Woens-dag / – week

    Soms wel soms niet. Soms kan ik heel erg lanterfanten en schiet het niet op… Ik vind die foto heel mooi. Gisteren maakte ik nog een paar mooie foto’ van de zee. Dat begint dus ook met een Z!

    • Melody  schreef ~ wrote:

      Al hou ik dan niet van lanterfanten…. ik heb het me wel (noodgedwongen maar toch) aangeleerd want mijn fysieke conditie vereist regelmatige momenten van rust.
      Ik heb dan wel de tv aan en kijk iets dat ik eerder al opnam of ben op de flap bezig of ik puzzel (sudoko) en speel feud want anders vlieg ik in no time weer omhoog ;-)

      Dank je wel.

      Zee-foto’s wil ik ook wel weer eens maken maar ja ik woon er niet al te dichtbij, wellicht eind van de maand als ik een weekend in Den Haag ben… en ja je hebt gelijk ;-)

    I am so grateful for those ZEALOUS little fellows too.
    My nephew raises many bees and gets the most delicious honey from them.
    It certainly doesn’t taste like the store bought kind.
    Happy New Year.

      Me to… I like what they create but also their importance for the ‘circle of life’

      The honey is very delicious indeed ;-) No there is a huge difference indeed… once tasted this, you never want to eat the store-stuff again

      Thank you, likewise,all the best in love, peace and happiness and lots of blessings

    Taking inspiration from your post I have promised to myself that I will be more zealous from now onward:) Thank you Melody :)

    • Melody  schreef ~ wrote:

      Haha did you promise that to yourself? Why?

      I think…. just try your best to live your life the best way you can with respect for yourself and all other life… will do…. Never forget, you’re are a unique person, just be yourself, there are plenty of others ;-)

    When I tried to link my ABC Wednesday post I got a ‘Link expired’ message

    • Melody  schreef ~ wrote:

      There can be a ton of reasons why you did get that message Lea….

      the simplest solution is to clean your browserhistorie, restart your computer (prefarbly after running ccleaner, which is a very handy and free tool to be found online) and then try again…

      Good Luck!

  • Shooting Parrots  schreef ~ wrote:

    Like you, I enjoy a spoonful of honey in my tea. And it sounds more healthy than sugar!

    • Melody  schreef ~ wrote:

      ;-) If you use the real kind, and not the fabricated sort from a supermarket, it not only sounds healthier but it is ;-)

    I am thankful for the zealous honey bees!
    Those hives are very different from the wooden box type hives we see here in the US – interesting!
    Thanks for your visit and comment on my blog.

    • Melody  schreef ~ wrote:

      Overhere we see lots of hyves in all kinds and shapes and sizes….. The wooden boxes you mention are here too

      You are welcome ;-)

    Great chose for Z…lots of zealous bees in the garden, and I do enjoy the honey they make, and that which I buy from the local bee-keeper!

  • A Creative Harbor  schreef ~ wrote:

    Wonderful post for Z ~ love the ‘zealous worker bees’ and photo ~
    (this may be a duplicate) 1st one didn’t appear to go through)

    Wishing you a Happy and Healthy New Year ~ ^_^

    • Melody  schreef ~ wrote:

      Thank you ;-)
      me too indeed…

      Yes it was… there was a little holdup on the blogroad :-P

      Thank you very much, wishing you the most beautiful year ever and that it may be the first of all, many to come.

    Love bees, fascinating creatures, I’ve always thought I would like to stroke one but needless to say I haven’t (a wasp sting was painful enough for me!). Love honey but my preference is melting into my morning toast.

    • Melody  schreef ~ wrote:

      Indeed they are Joy.

      I’ve once been stung in my mouth as a young adult, very painful so since that they I keep a safe distance from them ;-)

      Into toast it is delicious too indeed

    sometimes jealous of how zealous they can be and aspire to be like them :)
    thanks for visiting me and your comments..
    did not realize the next round will be the farewell tour for ABC :(
    What is the commitment to be a team-member? do let me know.. i hope to blog more consistently going forward and being a part of something like this might help too

      HI LadyInRed

      I know what you mean, feel the same way.

      You are welcome.

      Yes, the farewell tour… round 20.
      The official owner of the meme does not want to continue.
      I hope that someone else will take over, maybe even me, I am still thinking about it ;-)

      The commitment of a teammember means that he/she has to write a couple of intro’s in the alphabet…
      And … visit a part of the participants every week

      So you can imagine that how bigger that team is…. the less intro’s and visits with comments one has to provide ….although it is allowed ofcourse to visit every participant, like I do, ever have done since I became a teammember.

      If you have any questions more, feel free to email me at

      Being part of such a meme indeed is a way to blog more consistently, it takes you all over the world, sitting in your own lazy chair, shows you many wonderful things and let you get in touch with ‘new’ people, gives inspiration and motivation of various kinds. It is great fun!

    I’m glad you like in a place where you can see bees and nature and flowers. It is so important for the soul to be able to walk through such places.
