Belated Christmas Gifts

Cinda, our wonderful park district education director, came bouncing into our house and gave us hugs.  Then she presented us with two belated Christmas gifts.

In the bear is honey from the hives she and Tim have on their farm.  The bees' wax is mixed into it so the flavor is truly special.  She and her family spent part of their Christmas holiday  making the candles.  They used the sheets pulled from the foundation  they insert in the hives and melted wax from the honey combs to "glue' the sheet in a candle shape.  When the candle is burned, the sweet scent of honey fills the air.

The tag around the bear's neck brought us advise for living.

If your eyes are like mine, you will have to click on this picture to enlarge it enough to read the advice.
