|Honey from Love and Patience's Hives|
Recently a dear friend got married.
I went out early in the morning on the day of their wedding and gathered some honey as a gift for her Wedding and "Honeymoon". I took a frame from both "Love"s hive and from "Patience"'s hive.
I know that some people think I am daft for naming my hives instead of numbering them, but I think its important to give the queens a name. I enjoy the poetry of it. "Faith"'s hive always takes more work than the others. "Love" is always a very active hive. When my Veterinarian came over to open my hives with me, I cautioned her that "Love"'s hive was not as gentle as "Grace"'s hive, which we had just opened. She quickly replied- "Love needs to be fierce".. and so a bit of honey from "Love", and from "Patience, I thought, was a nice way to start a marriage.
