Flight of the bumbeebee [en.wikipedia.org]

Artichokes are marvellous feeding grounds for bumblebees. I have three of these plants in my allotment and their flowers are always full of bumblebees. Their busy nature reminds me of the piano piece The flight of the bumblebee].

Wikipedia:
[en.wikipedia.org] “The Flight of the Bumblebee” is a famous orchestral interlude written by Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov for his opera The Tale of Tsar Saltan, composed in 1899-1900. The piece closes Act III, Tableau 1, right after the magic Swan-Bird gives Prince Gvidon Saltanovich (the Tsar's son) instructions on how to change into an insect so that he can fly away to visit his father (who does not know that he is alive).

I know I am somewhat dyslexic but in case any of you were wondering bees don't feed, they seem to greed!
