Oh the hum~



There are bees buzzing and flowers blooming.  
I cannot come in from outside. 


These days, I spend my mornings singing with the bees down by the hives. The bees hum their musical drone and lull me into their world of vibration and sweetness.   I watch the flowers opening to their honeybee lovers, under June's morning sun, and I marvel at the blessings all around me.  Gus sniffs the sweet honey smells at the hive entrance, curious, intrigued and very cautious.  The cats slumber in the shade of the raspberries, and Mark sips his coffee on the porch. 


Tis a most magical time~



Thou seemest-a little deity!

Anacreon, Ode 34,
To the bee ( fifth century BC)

How lovely. Is it October for honey?

Actually no honey for us humans this year, all the honey those little hives are making is for them. Next year we will harvest in August most likely.

Usually you harvest honey a few different times over the course of the season depending on what is flowering and what the honey flow is like.


And then I am still learning.

Blissful. I wish I had time and space to keep bees. Until I do, I'll watch yours.
