For the longest time now, I've wanted to raise honeybees. As I've said before, I am enchanted by all things beeish...honey, beeswax, etc. I've dreamed of being a bee charmer like Idgie Threadgoode in Fried Green Tomatoes, or sending the love like August and Lilly in The Secret Life of Bees. Finally it happpened. At last I'm realizing this dream and thanking God for creating the marvelous, gentle honeybee. My husband and I had the best time setting up the supers and releasing the little winged lovelies. We didn't get stung once. I did burn myself twice with the smoker. But that was okay. I was too happy to care.
