More figs! I knew this appetizer would elicit some excitement, but I didn't expect five bees to fly straight into my kitchen as I simmered the honey on the stove. They entered through the laundry room where a window was cracked open. After gently nudging them back outside (I had rushed to close the kitchen door and hid out in the living room), Andrew went outside to see if he could find a hive. Nothing visible, at least, but they certainly were tempted by the sweet nectar that I was warming up.
