Fried Green Tomatoes is one of my top ten movies ever! Remember when she went into that bee hive in the tree and got that honey!!!! I have always wondered if people really did that! And I am proud to say I finally did yesterday!
This is another beekeeper friend, Michael. He is raising his bees in the most organic fashion! He doesn't wear any protection wear! I thought he was crazy at first, and then he convinced me that his bees didn't sting him and they wouldn't sting me either. I didn't believe him at first but then realized I have always wanted to try not to wear protective gear to see if was easier working bees that way. So....I did! No one stung me! How neat it was to just be able to see the bees with my eyes with no veil over them, touch the frames with no gloves on, and have bees flying around me with no fear of getting stung. His bees are alot more calm then mine are. My girls are not as tolerant ...they take after their keeper I guess :)
So................ TOWANDA!!!!!!! ......... I am a bee charmer!!!!
And so isn't Joyce Bearden for winning the Bee Charming note cards!!!!
