Humblebee

It’s the season for confused bumblebees who visit our apartment. And they aren’t very good at finding their way out again. I don’t know much about bees, but I guess they just woke up from winter sleep? Which explains why they’re being slow and weird. But they’re also kind of cute and fuzzy.

“Where’s the buzzing door?!”

They are called “humlebi” in Danish, and – since mixing similar Danish and English words is apparently a new thing of mine – humble bee it is! (Like with the rams onions in the post before last).

Rams onions

There are ramsons everywhere around the city right now, and it’s so nice with something green to look at outside (before the garlic smell takes over later in Spring).

Btw I had to look up what these plants are called in English, because I only knew the Danish term “ramsløg” – (rams onions). I of course ended up reading about the etymology of the word, because linguistics!

I’m digging the digital at the moment, so I drew this in Illustrator with my Wacom drawing tablet.

Throwback bike doodle

Throwback to biking around icy Copenhagen a month ago with this guy:

I only slipped once in the snow while cycling and managed to jump off my bike and throw it aside – and LAND ON MY FEET! The rest of the trip was peaceful yet cold (but there were croissants).

The weather is starting to look a bit like Spring, and I can’t wait for a season with lots of biking. And hopefully no falling, since I’ve probably used up all my luck that one time landing ON. MY. FEET.
