Imagine that you are sitting on your deck enjoying the sun on a summer afternoon. You can see the red and green of your tomato plants in your garden.
You can smell the perfume of your flowers in the flower beds just off the deck. And you can hear the buzzing and humming of the honeybees in your garden beehive.
As you watch, you see your honeybees flying from flower to flower, gathering nectar and pollinating your garden and backyard.
You see them take the nectar back to the hive where they are making honey to share with you and your family.
You see them fanning and dancing at the entrance of their beehive, basking in the sun and enjoying good food from the flowers and plants in your yard and garden.
You take out your hive tool and scrape some propolis from one of the frames, pop it into your mouth and begin chewing. It’s the sweetest gum you have ever tasted. The scent of honey in the air, it’s time to set the burdens of everyday life aside and tend to your bees.
