Last week I had breakfast with my friend and phenomenal artist, Donna Jill Witty. Afterward—just a short walk away—I got a tour of her painting studio. Located in the lofty regions of a historic building, circa mid-1800‘s, it has at-least-20-foot ceilings and a massive 12-or more-foot window. If I had her view, my nose would stay pressed to the glass all day and I’d never get anything done!
Walking back to our cars I took some photos of this bee extracting nectar from a purple cone flower—echinacea. Head burrowed for maximum pleasure, it didn’t mind as I inched closer with each shot. On my drive home, I wondered about the difference between nectar and honey…
…bees produce honey from nectar they harvest. Nectar is produced directly by flowers. Hence, vegans prefer nectar because no animals are involved in the production.
Are you enjoying life’s nectar down to the last drop?
