Dance of the Bumblebees...

I love the taste of fresh honey... especially the dark winter honey that I bought at the Wilson Czech Festival last year. I couldn't wait to get it home and start tasting it on almost everything: fruit, crackers, fresh bread. I've baked with it and added it into sauces. You name it I've tried it. It's been nine months and I'm almost out - so sad, but I do have the number to get more.

That love of honey and my daily walks have me thinking about bees. I love watching the BIG bumblebees in my garden. They always seem so busy, so graceful.

Here are a couple of items I found on Etsy that I BEElive are worth a second look.

This Steampunk Necklace by Ballyhoo Jewelry was the first piece to catch my eye.
