Daniel, I know you have the wisdom and experience to know your own limits. I am concerned about you going back on a full-time schedule. I understand what you say about loss of energy. I have the privelege of napping and I hope you can do that, even as you are on the job. 

May I ask, and you are free to decline to answer, are you having chemo or radiation?

Amer, I was puzzled by the man's demeanor, but never saw him as angry, just aggressive. When he ran back toward me he was all smiles and chatter.
In retrospect, I think he knew he couldn't explain so that I would understand so he did what every good problem solver does, he thought and took action. It was a wonderful experience and I have the fruits of his labor.

That is very quick to go back to work, Sentient! Have a good time but take care!

Comment by Dominic Florio on April 28, 2013 at 10:38pm

I'm not an expert on bees, but I do know a thing or two about queens.

Comment by Sentient Biped on April 28, 2013 at 9:44pm

Amer, thanks for asking.  Tomorrow I return to my former full work schedule.  So I guess I'm OK.  Still have frequent  times when I feel like all of my energy has drained out.  But getting better.

Joan, I love that story of your Hollyhocks from Turkey.  It's a wonderful memory. 

Dominic, you may be right about the queen.  I'm still on a steep learning curve with the honeybees.

Joan, you were picking the unripened seeds, perhaps that was what angered the man.

Sentient how are you. Hope you are recovering well. Good times after horrible ones are the most memorable in our lives. Wish a very happy spring to you and your bees.

Comment by Idaho Spud on April 27, 2013 at 3:01pm

Joan, I like your Hollyhock story.

Comment by Dominic Florio on April 26, 2013 at 8:16pm

Sentient, I only have a basic knowledge of bees.  I did hear though, one of those people who have bees swarm all over them, say that what they do is to hold the queen in a small wire cage.  The hive will gather all over the person to surround the queen.

You know, regarding recent comments, I just have to say that I feel really sorry for people who have no appreciation for growing things (with "growing" being an adjective, not a verb). Those who don't appreciate the shape of a leaf, the texture of bark, the unfolding of a flower, the rustling of leaves.

And for those who don't eat or enjoy fresh produce. Who get every meal from a box or a can or a drive thru. 

These people just don't know what they're missing.

Women goat herders, dressed from head to foot, even in over 100∘ F. This is not my photo and not of Turkish women. But it is as close as I could get to the scene I experienced.
