A Word A Week Challenge: Fur

I have these photos of bees and started to do some research on whether bees have fur or hair….

Oh my goodness!

It seems that opinion is divided!

So I thought I would look and see if monkeys had fur or hair….

Oh my goodness again!

It seems that opinion is divided!

(This is going to be an easy post if I just keep repeating myself!)

It was in that great divide that I decided that the bees in my photos certainly look like they have fur and that was that!

Voilà…

Weekly Photo Challenge: The Hue of You 2

Oh dear apple the hue of you  Is somewhat bad and rotten! How could we have left you on the shelf All sad and quite forgotten!

Oh dear apple the hue of you
Is somewhat bad and rotten!
How could we have left you on the shelf
All sad and quite forgotten!

 

We're sorry dear apple the hue of you As I said before really is quite rotten! And when I turned you upside down The rot's got right to your bottom!

We’re sorry dear apple that the hue of you
As I said before is quite rotten!
And when I turned you upside down
I saw the rot’s got right to your bottom!

 

And yet dear apple the hue of you From the side it's really quite pretty! The mould has given you stripes I see But our treatment of you was still @£@$%&!!

And yet dear apple the hue of you
From the side you look rather nice!
The mould has given you stripes I see
So I won’t eat, not even one slice

That’s All!

Thursday’s Special:

You think I'm a pretty foxglove, With beautiful pinks and spots, But I have got a problem, That bothers me lots and lots! I find I have no confidence, When it comes to going out! I have some whiskers on my chin That have just begun to sprout!

You think I’m a pretty foxglove,
With beautiful pinks and spots,
But I have got a problem,
That bothers me lots and lots!
I find I have no confidence,
When it comes to going out!
I have some whiskers on my chin
That have just begun to sprout!

 

Shauna Sheep had a problem too, She wished the farmer had been kind... You see she was getting chilly now, Because of how he'd sheared her behind!!

Harry Horsefly had bad press, Because of his horrible habits! But really he didn't give a damn  As long as the poo was rabbit's!!

Pretty, delicate, sweet are you, Oh feather so fluffy and light! But you must get so lonely out here, When day turns into night!
