Our England is a garden, and such gardens are not made
By singing: -"Oh, how beautiful!" and sitting in the shade.

Thanks, i quite ike it as well,! Or is that bigheaded? Anyway.... they remind me of musical notes that have been written, and just sitting there waiting to be sung :) I actually believe that we may well be getting more of our abilities from the world in which we live and don't think we sometimes do not give nature in its entirity the credit it deserves. For example the way that the humble bumble dances to show the way, (as it were) my question is are we actually sure that the display is not thier way of trying to make us understand that they do communicate things like that. Where better to try to make us realize that they do this, is it that they have chosen thier site well, chosen thier message and then just waited for us to find it? makes you think...
