Honey & Bumblebees

beauty and the bumblebee smallYou should see the Rusalka Wood when the spring beauties bloom. Daphne and I go up there to harvest a few blossoms, greens and the faerie spuds, and enormous bumblebees are everywhere. It reminds me of Beorn’s homestead in The Hobbit, with his enormous bees.

hungry bumblebeeI should really get around to building some new hives. It’s cheap to make them, and I am registered to keep bees. The only problem is the nectar flows are not reliable on this mountain, and if I put them off in the deep glades where the good flows happen, bears will shortly find the hives.
