This summer as I spent a lovely time in the
Smoky Mountains at a family reunion,
I sat out on the porch in the twig rocking chair and read Dandelion Wine  by Ray Bradbury.
Perfect summertime reading!
I loved this (above) quote from the book
and then I found it on Pinterest!
Bees are extraordinary, you know. 
Almost magical!
So in light of National Honey Bee Day this Saturday,
I thought to list for you some of the astonishing things about honey bees.
  1. Honey bees must gather nectar from two million flowers to make one pound of honey.
  2. One bee has to fly about 90,000 miles three times around the globe to make one pound of honey.
  3. The average bee will make only 1/12th of a teaspoon of honey in its lifetime.
  4. A honey bee visits 50 to 100 flowers during a collection trip.
  5. A honey bee can fly for up to six miles, and as fast as 15 miles per hour.
  6. Honey bees communicate with one another by dancing.
  7. A colony of bees consists of 20,000-60,000 honey bees and one queen. Worker honey bees are female, live for about 6 weeks and do all the work.
  8. Larger than the worker bees, the male honey bees (also called drones), have no stinger and do no work. All they do is mate.
  9. Honey bees have been producing honey in the same way for 150 million years.
  10. The honey bee is the only insect that produces food eaten by man.
  11. Honey lasts an incredibly long time. An explorer who found a 2000 year old jar of honey in an Egyptian tomb said it tasted delicious!
  12. The bees buzz is the sound made by their wings which beat 11,400 times per minute.
  13. When a bee finds a good source of nectar it flies back to the hive and shows its friends where the nectar source is by doing a dance which positions the flower in relation to the sun and hive. This is known as the waggle dance.
  14. Honeys ability to attract and retain moisture means that it has long been used as a beauty treatment. It was part of Cleopatras daily beauty ritual.
