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

Damn, It's Hot!

It was over 100 degrees, and my bees were as angry as me.  Look at their blurry little wings fanning the entrance.  They were equally mad about me stealing some of their honey.

My cute little 8-frame bee escape boards did their job...

...and now I have removed my first two finished supers of honey to store in the garage until extraction day.  The plastic and duct tape make this scene look almost criminal (I miss you, Dexter!), but I swear it's just to keep the bees out.
