Out here water is everything.
This morning noticed some thirsty bees hovering around our grey water tap, so I cracked it open just a little to give them a drink.
Pretty soon word had gotten out and there was a full-on bee-hydration party in progress.
The world was really one bee yard, and the same rules work fine in both places. Don’t be afraid, as no life-loving bee wants to sting you. Still, don’t be an idiot; wear long sleeves and pants. Don’t swat. Don’t even think about swatting. If you feel angry, whistle. Anger agitates while whistling melts a bee’s temper. Act like you know what you’re doing, even if you don’t. Above all, send the bees love. Every little thing wants to be loved. –Sue Monk Kidd
