And Just Like That

DSC_1201They swarmed off.

When the willow fell, it was full of bees and honey.  Just hours later the new hive was set in place.  Everything was going well. DSC_1123

The hive was gaining popularity for a few days.  


Then the wasps got curious.  And then the hornets.  We were going to move the hive that day.  Walking back in from the field, we heard the noise.  We saw the cloud.  Then they were gone.


The wasps and hornets can clear honeycomb in minutes.  Lovely honey, dripping and full of yum is now left empty.


I can only assume that the bees got fed up with those pesky wasps and hornets.  They all agreed to find a new home.

    I use bees wax and coconut oil 50/50 to make my lip balm. We used to chew it as kids, like gum. It was a little tougher and didn’t last as long, but was yummy.

      When I offered a taste to local French who popped by, the olds would take a piece of honeycomb and eat it. The youngs would dip their finger in the honey.
