GROWING THE EYE
Here is a fantastic photo by Michael--so fantastic that we're submitting it to the American Bee Journal (it's waaaay better than the current issue's cover photo, I nota bene with an unbiased lucid eye).
Here is Michael by our beehive...that he painted as well with the colors of the Colombian flag (laugh):
The bees arrived at about the same time Big, Burly Men worked on installing gardens. So there's plenty of flowers to go around, like in this shot with Mom doing her daily walk (which I insist she does particularly as she's now been afflicted with writer-disease):
Given our own interests, it's been a joy to have a child around who's developing his eye nicely as well as his own artistic talents. A blessing. It requires much pollination, after all, to create Honey.
