telling the bees


When someone dies you are supposed to tell the bees and invite them to the funeral, give them wine and cake, hang mourning cloth over the hive.

You should tell them other things as well - of a marriage, when you are planning to rob the hive, when you are troubled by your dreams.

Tell and they will listen, tell and they will spread the word with the wind.
