Bees and Plants


Old people of treebeekeeping traditions say that bees are born overseas in the rocks, and then arrived in our forests.

Believe it or - not, but the bees are God's creature, they are hardworking and always know if a person is wicked or kind one, who comes to them. So the bees do not sting but kiss.

Chief among bees is Queen-bee, who manages her friends and soldiers, singing her songs and dances round dance.

It could be always seen hardworking little black bee in local forests, which was called Barouka.

The Human domesticated animals, however, with a bee he decided to work and live together.
