What did the Bee say to the Flower?

Hello, honey! 

Spent a little time this week helping my friend Nathan collect honey from his beehives. He did the dangerous work of pulling the frames from the hives over the weekend. He says the bees are angry and aggressive this time of year because not a lot is blooming, so I can wait and see that part of the operation when they calm down. For this, we cut the comb out of the frame, mashed it up, and then used sieves and buckets to let gravity separate the honey. I can say fresh honey is out of this world.
