Thank You Postal Service!

I don’t mean to brag but I have one of the nicest and considerate mail carriers. Not only does she bring me my mail when she is making a package delivery but she stops by first thing in the morning when she knows the package has plants in it. That way the plants don’t spend all day in her car before she makes it to my neighborhood.

I was so touched with her latest consideration that I decided to treat her to something special. Adding a little card of explanation, I snuck a jar of fresh honey from my hives in the mailbox, hoping the card leaning on the jar would stay upright long enough for her to see it.

Sure enough, the following day I found a little thank you note from her scribbled on a torn piece of yellow paper. And she said she loves honey!

Sharing the honey from my bees is one of my favorite things to do!
