ABC Wednesday and B is for .....

ABC Wednesday and B is for Bus - last weekend - can you feel the pulseBeat from these old buses - taking guests to a wedding reception cruising through the streets of Acton Burnell a tiny village in Mid Shropshire
Speeding away past the village post office - closed today of course
I thought you may like this little ditty from a very old Shropshire book passed down in our family. 'A nut and a kernel Say the Bells of Acton Burnell'
We waited a while for the buses to appear and were able to take a few pics of the bees having a Buzzing time in the village gardens. Butterflies ? no - unfortunately they are struggling for survival due to the shocking wet summer - see link Although good news I saw a Woodland White and a LBN ( little brown number) terminology taken from the birding fraternity (it flew over the hedge before I could identify it !! Beautifuk sunny day in Shropshire today - I am off the check my Buddlea bush for bees and butterflies - linking this week to ABC Wednesday - Our World Tuesday - and Nature Notes -lovely to have your company today - Jane

  5. The buses are delightful. What a great way to transport the weding guests.

    Actually, what came first to mind was that rhyme -
    A for 'orses.
    B for mutton.
    C for yourself
    and so on, through Q for oranges and my fav.
    P for relief. :o
    We used to have a vintage coach service around here that offered day trips. It was a great day out but they folded up because of the dreaded eu 'Elf & safety rules. Sad really.

  13. I am drooling here! I am a busdriver and love those old buses. To see mind, it's apparently quite hard to drive them. Although I would love to try one day. Thank you for the beautiful shots.

  14. What wonderful festive buses - great photos and a fine choice for B/

  15. Those buses are so fun and full of character, how perfect for your "B" post!

    The bee and the flowers is such a pretty picture, but what a shame about the poor butterflies.

  16. Oh, that bus is spectacular! Makes me want to have another wedding just to ride in one. ;-)

  17. Lovely photos Jane..and here the insects are having trouble due to the hot dry weather. We did get some rain last night and more later which is so good...Thank you for linking up to Nature Notes...Michelle
