Hmmm.....this is one interesting topic. So many events that have occurred to us all and every last one tells a great story.
Me thinks that the biggest thing that I learned this season was: never wear a dark hoodie coat on a dark and gloomy day and look into a hive, thinking that there isn't many guard bees hangin' out. I did this, you'll probably remember my story. I was checking the bees quickly one evening, after me being confined to the house because of rainy weather, to see if they had sugar syrup still. My hoodie was pulled over my head and a bee flew inside (amongst into my coat as well and into my shirt and stung my bicep later on) and it went into my ear. That is one eerie feeling. I remember that I wasn't too sure what to do. And I was walking back to the house, I was going to get my Husband to catch it with tweezers and pull it out, but the bee eventually backed out (probably figured out that this was not the entrance to her home), and must have turned around and stung me on the way out. Oh brother.....that was one of my lessons and not the last of probably hundreds yet to come, yeah!!!! The world of our bees. Have a wonderful and eventful life, full of learning lessons about our bees. Cindi
