Bees are a sisterhood of workers,devoted to each other and to the work that is so important to them. Bees have a unique kind of communication called the "Waggle Dance" This type of communication is very sophisticated and unique to the Honey Bee.
Sadly something is going on world wide with our bees...they are disappearing and the scientists do not know why. It is becoming increasingly more important to raise bees and help, if even in a small way. Here is a little segment on a tv special that was done recently, explaining the sad situation. Hopefully the Beekeepers and the Scientists can unlock the mystery of CCD (colony collapse disorder)
Ok....so I bet you are wondering where the contest part is?
Leave a comment with your favorite good or bad bee story. If you do not have a bee story, then a simple Buzzzzzzzzzz....will do. The contest prize will be a skein of my new Bambino yarn in Tupelo honey with a Marie Antoinette pattern, a braid of Tupelo Honey angora blend roving and this sweet little Bee pin made by Rachel Badeau .
I will use a random calculator to pick a winner on Halloween (Friday). I am looking forward to hearing from you!
Lastly, for you Manise, my friend, a favorite little bee ditty.... "Community" (send them scurrying...)
