Relax with Nature & Music

This is a collection of Bees, Butterflies & insects in Menu's back garden.
Lots of Bee varities these days in the garden. It is always a relaxing thought to know that these small wonders of nature are close at hand.

"Plants cannot move, and so they rely on other creatures – normally insects – to move their pollen for them. The insects must be attracted to the flowers so that they will pollinate them. Most of the time, the flowers produce nectar to attract the insects. The bright petals are an advertisement, telling the insects that there is nectar or edible pollen available.

To make the seeds, flowers need to send their powdery pollen to other plants, and get new pollen in return. Some flowers contain sweet nectar that hummingbirds, bees, butterflies and other flying insects love to sip. As they reach inside the flower to sip the nectar, the sticky pollen falls on the birds' or insects' backs, heads, feathers or feet. When they fly into the next flower, they drop off the pollen from the first flower, and so on.

Flowers that do not make nectar rely on the wind to spread their pollen.Bees use the nectar they collect from flowers to make honey. Next time you enjoy honey on your toast, remember that it all started with a flower." #wp

My Reflection

My Reflection

This site is a tribute to Buddhism. Buddhism has given me a tremendous inspiration to be who and where I am today. Although I came to America at a very young age, however, I never once forget who I am and where I came from. One thing I know for sure is I was born as a Buddhist, live as a Buddhist and will leave this earth as a Buddhist. I do not believe in superstition. I only believe in karma.

Tipitaka: The pali canon (Readings in Theravada Buddhism). A vast body of literature in English translation the texts add up to several thousand printed pages. Most -- but not all -- of the Canon has already been published in English over the years. Although only a small fraction of these texts are available here at Access to Insight, this collection can nonetheless be a very good place to start.
