Reverie - n. a state of being pleasantly lost in one's thoughts; a daydream or fantasy; a visionary or impractical idea

"To make a prairie it takes a clover and one bee,—
One clover, and a bee,
And revery.

The revery alone will do
If bees are few." - Emily Dickinson

Let's Hear It For The Ladies

More and more women are becoming beekeepers.  Young women.  Women who enjoy dressing like females.  Sorry DH, but that extra-large beesuit you loaned me for the field day was just unattractive.  Yes, part of me had fun with it.  The waxy dirtiness of it was sexy, especially how it made me look a lot more experienced than I really am, but come on now. 

Let’s take a cue from this lovely lady.  She’s working it, and she knows she looks good doing it.  Yes, a bee is going to climb up her shirt and sting her.  But I’m guessing she likes that, too. 

By the way, she’s smoking the hell out of her bees, but we’ll cut her some slack.  She’s excited because she knows she looks so good.  Now if we can only convince her to lose those gloves...
