The white-tailed bumblebee on the front of this eco-friendly greeting card was seen sipping nectar from blackberry flowers during an early-summer walk in the Patterdale Valley in the Lake District, England’s largest national park.
“Bramble bushes are brimming with pretty petals—white with the faintest tint of pink. Each petal stems from a lemon-yellow centre whose stamens conjure up images of a peacock’s crest. A cornucopia of flying insects quaffs nectar from the sweet inner sanctums of each flower’s centre.” —from ‘A Trio of Swallows‘.
