  3. WORLD HONEY BEE DAY

    August 15, 2020, All Day

    The day recognizes both the honey bee and the beekeepers who tend the hives. It also encourages everyone to enjoy and buy locally grown honey. Honey bees do sting, but only if they perceive a threat – damage to their hive or being swatted at. Since they seek sweet nectar, sugary drinks and sweets will attract honey bees when flowers are not blooming yet. So, keep your beverages covered. If a honey bee comes close, either hold still or move slowly away. The honey bee will fly along to the next sweet thing as long as it doesn’t feel threatened. HOW TO OBSERVE #WorldHoneyBeeDay Collect and spread local wildflower seeds to promote honey bee pollination. Flavors of honey vary depending on the variety of flowers and nectar available to the bees. Clover, alfalfa, lavender, orange, and chestnut are just a few to choose from. Replace your usual sweetener with honey for the day. Taste the difference! Give the gift of honey to a friend, neighbor, co-worker or family member.

    August 20, 2020, All Day

    Donal Ryan is a wonderful writer. His first novel, The Spinning Heart, won The Guardian First Book Award in 2013 and he’s been longlisted twice for the Booker Prize. Strange Flowers (out on August 20) is his fifth novel – a tender and beautifully written story about three generations of a family living in rural Ireland. It starts in 1973, when 20-year-old Moll Gladney catches an early morning bus from her home and completely disappears. Her parents search for their daughter without success and fear they’ll never see her again. But five years later Moll returns home, followed by a man who transforms her family’s life forever. We read this outstanding book in one sitting and will definitely return to it again.
