    Have you tasted the nectar of Azelea?

    • AshiAkira says:

      Yes. I was five or so then. Azaleas were as big as the palm of my hand. They were so pretty I couldn’t help plucking them, and I found water like a raindrop on the back of my hand. I licked it with my tongue and it was so sweet. I don’t remember how many azaleas I picked and sucked the nectar from the bottom of them after that.

        Ah, brings back memories of childhood. We did the same thing then from a tubular flower. You must have been a bee in previous life. Thank you for responding.
