Winter keeps trying to creep in. Snow falls and melts, but the bees have long since departed. I sipped honeyed tea with family for the first time in a while today—a much needed reprieve. But as honey takes time to make, I imagined the effort from my flying friend that it took to sweeten my tea and was thankful for it.
