You 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.
I 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.
