I've probably thought about doing this twenty times, but between the musical, the new chicks (22 of them), the Mother's Day Tea, Mother's Day, an inside the house screaming for attention, an outside garden screaming for attention. Ugh.
So, here I am.
Last year, I saved all the wax that fell off the top bar hive, the cappings we removed before we spun out the honey and the comb created awkwardly that I removed. That dark comb is stain from the pollen. If you heat it too hot to melt, you risk losing that good smell .
Today is Mother's Day and on the back of a lovely card from my sister was this sweet saying-
To those who comfort with a mother's hand,
we thank you,
To those who encourage with a mother's praise,
we applaud you,
To those who love with a mother's heart,
we honor you,
not just on Mother's Day..... always
Indeed! Happy Mother's Day!
