It’s been a lush Spring, with flowers galore from the rains. I’ve begun to harvest some of my girl’s honey.
Emily Dickinson celebrates bees, clover and honey…often.
I wonder why I never knew about her connection to the bees?
The pedigree of honey(Emily Dickinson, 1884)
Does not concern the bee;
A clover, any time, to him (ahem, Emily, all the field bees are girls!!!)
To make a prairie it takes a clover and one bee,(Emily Dickinson, 1896)
One clover, and a bee,
The revery alone will do,
If bees are few.
If you would like a pint of local, raw and artisanal, organic honey ($12), send me a message. Limited availability.
Here’s to a pint of the amber elixir…Celebrate pollinators~!
