One of my summertime activities is beekeeping. We have at least one hive per garden for pollination, good vibrations, and personal fascination. And wonderful raw honey for oatmeal breakfasts.
This was a good call--we didn't have any angry bee buzzing or stings.
Bees are amazing and essential creatures. They are also suffering from mysterious problems that science has not solved. I have read many bee books and try to keep up with bee news (this post's link to words and writing).
