My honey and I took a Bee Keeping class. I'll talk more about it tomorrow. His take: bees = yummy honey and help our fruit trees which have NOT produced a single fruit. *sigh* My take: Bees = beautiful decor when tastefully done. It's a Venus/Mars thing I guess, but it balances and completes the admiration of God's gift: the honey bee.
Here are 3 interesting facts: In the course of her lifetime, a worker bee will produce 1/12th of a teaspoon of honey. To make one pound of honey, workers in a hive fly 55,000 miles and tap two million flowers. The honeybee is not born knowing how to make honey; the younger bees are taught by the more experienced ones.
Does anyone have bees? Anyone have tips for our pitiful pear, peach and apple trees? Is having Black Walnut Trees nearby the problem? Do you have any bees in your decor? Am I asking too many questions? *wink* Top photo is Napoleon Bee flatware; soap plate and honey organic soap (click on photo to link)!
