Speaking of bee-frames: this has been a summer of stings, myself receiving four, though only one from the bees in my care, and a really good friend, last Sunday, going into shock from the bite of an angry hornet.
I'll never get tired of observing their single-minded toil. It is so inspiring, they have no trouble getting to all the things to make and do.
I'm quite proud of the first and last image. Like chickens, bees are hard creatures to capture. By hand or on camera.
They were quite attracted to the floral colors of this dress Missa gave me last spring. Not without good reason, of course.
Time once more to gather all of one's energy and muster through another day of work and cooking and cleaning and writing and harvesting.
See you soon, I hope.
