on July 17th, Gina’s beloved Aunt Bea passed away. She’d been ill for a while, and although her passing wasn’t a surprise, it was a big loss. Fortunately, G had the opportunity to be with her for a bit prior to her death.
Later the very same day of her passing, we learned that a colony of bees had built a hive
on the farm, between the kitchen shutter and window – a prominent spot that
couldn’t be missed.
always enjoyed a good joke.
We weren’t at the farm to take care of the bee invasion. But not to worry: our good friend Pietro carefully removed the hive, and relocated it to the farm his family owns just a few miles away from Tutto Doppio.
On our last visit, Pietro presented to us a couple of good sized jars of Bea’s honey. We rebottled it, and shared it with those we love!
