In The Heart of Summer

Bee on Daisy

The air outside . . . ahhhh.                                                                                                                    We have these long cold winters and now, in the heart of summer,  is our time of rapture. The bees seem to be happy. When more frames arrive I will add another ‘storey’ and carefully take some of their honey . . . maybe to be judged at the agricultural fairs of August.

In the heart of summer 50 years ago, I was a restless teenager, watching some men step upon the surface of the Moon. How did they get there? How did we do it so quickly- from the lips of a fallen President? You know I like to mix up the macro with the micro 😉 80,000 bees in a successful hive at the peak of Summer, 6,000 people at NASA on July 24, 1969. While that settles, how about that Wernher von Braun and his Saturn F5. I’ve always liked the number 5, that’s how many hives I have registered with the Ontario Regulatory Bodies who want to know about how many bees people are stewarding over.

Here is Herr Braun, and his idea5 and von braun
