I'm thrilled she did, too! Beekeepers are good people and they write good blogs.

We'll try not to get as cranky as the Almack's hostesses. You needn't wear white to this party and anyone may waltz!

Nothing like a four-day party, is there?

And it's wonderful to have all our faithful readers gathering with us! Virtual champagne to all and settle in for a good gossip or two...

Ah, my psychic Irish half must have picked up the vibrations! I imagine your bees enjoy the protection of those lovely hedges as well as the pollen.

sigh, typepad rejected my email reply. I should think "clover" honey or "Ti=tree" honey would be explanatory enough, but silly descriptions like "sour like green apples" wouldn't hurt.

Thank you, Annette! We'll have to tell the bees if we're not feeling well, I guess.

Modern agriculture may have benefits, but not to our bees. We have to find more natural ways of keeping out unwanted insects and weeds and welcoming the good ones. It's not easy and I pity the poor farmers struggling with both sides of this problem.

Oh how very cool! Yes, this legend would fit in beautifully.

I wonder why honey sellers aren't doing this already. Or maybe there's just not enough production of specific kinds to sell bottles of "thyme honey, vintage 2020." But it would be fun if they did!

Oh, I read that! Maybe that's where I picked up my interest? I have utterly no memory of the story anymore though.

oh, that's a shame about the pools! Bees and citrus are just made for each other, but we don't have room for a hive. So I just give them lots of pretty flowers.

oh ouch on the swollen hand. That does sound like an allergic reaction unless you were stung multiple times. Best to avoid the little buggers. The nests are fascinating but I'd rather not have one in my yard.

a honey tasting! The stuff in stores is bland compared to the real thing, isn't it? Historically, beekeepers could have just smoked out the bees, but they wanted all parts of the hive and those skeps just didn't allow for that.

oh, that's great! I like knowing that bees get a lot of respect. Our farmer ancestors paid attention to their value.

ah, yes, that first childhood bee sting does a lot of us in! And wasps are just plain scary. and that is interesting about the eclipse!

and we're so glad you finally found us! I think it's a great idea for young minds to read the great literature and expand their world. But once we know our way around a bit, reading becomes a form of entertainment and relaxation. Romance is ideal!

Isn't it interesting how certain types of stories and heroes simply click? I read Stewart and Holt for the mystery more than the heroes but Woodiwiss... wow, she knew how to make it hot!
