Honey Spas 2016
Because it is August 14th today, Carrot Soup is getting dressed in the Quimper Hitty’s traditional Ukrainian finery (which was made for Tansy two years ago when she went to visit our Ukrainian Hitty friend in Winnipeg).
It is believed that today the bees stop collecting nectar, roses stop blooming, the swallows start their migration south and the dew on the grass becomes cold. This celebration marks the beginning of the end of summer. Honey Spas is celebrated in Russia and Ukraine.
Happy Honey Spas, and blessings on the honey. We hope people everywhere are able to celebrate a joyful and abundant honey harvest…
…and do everything they can to make the world a better place for bees!
