Sound of the Hive
« on: July 21, 2011, 05:16:18 PM »
We are getting several days of hot temperatures this week in the Piedmont. The hive "sounds like a fan" this afternoon. Would assume the girls are on the comb fanning?

I like to put my face into their exhaust and inhale.  Have to emphasize the inhale part. They don't take kindly to mammals breathing into their space.

Listen to others but make your own decisions. That way you own the results.

When I stand before God at the end of my life, I would hope that I would
not have a single bit of talent left, and could say, "I used everything You gave me"

I like to put my ear against the back of the hive. It sounds kinda like rain on a tin roof...I love that sound :)
