Patchwork

by donna smith ammons

Last summer, hubby-dear and granddaughter, Riley Kate, decided to become beekeepers. They talked over what they would need. On her own, Riley read about bees and was quite knowledgeable when she and PaPaw went into the pasture to set up the hives.

However, before this could be done, there needed to be materials ordered. Boxes of beehives came and they patiently put them together. Then, of course, they needed books to study about their project.
