Parton Saints of Beekeepers and a nice Beekeeping Quote

There are certain pursuits which, if not wholly poetic and true, do at least suggest a nobler and finer relation to nature than we know. The keeping of bees, for instance. --- Henry David Thoreau

 Many people ask me who the patron Saints of Bee keepers are.. well this is who I found. 

My next post will be on world beekeeping deities, like Mayan Bee deities at Tulum etc..
