Bee Brave

The weather finally turned warm enough to open some hives a few days

Grandpa asked if anyone wanted to help him and Madalynn rushed to'
get boots and a suit on.(doesn't she look like alittle alien)

"I will smoke you to death" For those of you that don't know,
alittle piece of burlap is placed in the smoker and it kinda smolders.
When my manly man teaches beginning beekeeping one of his jokes
is "to smoke or not smoke". Some are for it and some are against it.
Sorry, I regressed.....the smoke quiets the bees down,they think their
house is on fire and start eating honey. So, when you open the hive
it's easier to do your work. Maddy was the smoker. ( I secretly love
the smell)
