Bees a'buzzing

The bees at the arb were In their element today. Warm and sunny. Light breezes. Many new flowers to sniff. Honey to make.

My grandfather kept bees. Maybe a dozen hives. He added a few every year a neighbors called him to remove a swarm settled in some inconvenient place, like a front porch.

Each summer I helped him gather the honey. My job was to chew the comb that didn't make it to the jars. Yeah, it was a tough job, but I did it well.
