  • Art Description

    As a beekeeper since 2005, I have observed daily life in the hive and is not all sweetness and light. Honeybees work sun up to sundown and that involves defending the hive and their honey from intruders such as wasps and mice. An alternate title could be They work hard for the honey and that is the truth. A honeybee lives 4 weeks and she makes approximately a fingernail size amount of honey in her lifetime. Every drop of honey represents a life's work.
