I have fallen in love with pollinators … and in particular with Apis mellifera, the honey bearing bee … one of the greatest teachers in my life. At the peak of summer, my family expands to almost a quarter of a million in number. There is not a day that goes by when I don’t think about these precious winged beings. I am a shameless Apis mellifera-loving hussy. I talk bee and English is now my second language … Come have holy bee communion. I’m glad you’re here.
