Bees in Winter: Scenes of Hibernation by Ella, Nina, and Sasha

28 Nov

What do bees do all winter anyway? According to my elementary school nieces, here’s what goes down inside a hive full of girl bees waiting all winter for a sip of spring nectar…

In Ella’s words:

If I we’re a bee I would sleep all winter and I would decorate my house with flowers also I would decorate it with snowmen pictures in the summer I will collect pollin from flowers!

According to Nina:

If I we’re a bee I would paint my house with gold and black paint my bed would be lime green and my job would be to pollinate I would do anything to become a bee for just one hour all I would like to do is to soar I just hope they have cherrys to eat if not  I would eat honey bees are fassanating creatures.

Sasha’s thoughts on bees:

Have you ever thought what it would be like to be a bee?  I have and I think it would be awesome to be a bee for even 1 second!  If I were a bee, in the winter, I would chatter with my friends all night as we snuggled up in our honeycomb, trying to stay warm.   My friends and I would drink warm honey all day long.  It would be HEAVEN for me!  I would have a smokey fire in my room to keep me warm all winter.  I would probably get loney, though.  I would miss my parents and my sister bees.  I would especially miss my baby brother bee, Luka!!!  After the cold winter, I would get up and smell the fresh Spring air. I’d spread my wings, leap into the air, and gather pollen for the queen to make honey.  PERFECT!!
