    Dripping with honey? Is this an expression or an illustration of what is really happening, the combs are dripping honey? I'm confused and don't know why honey would be dripping from your combs.

    Just a saying. They ate full of honey and need another box. Still bringing in nectar and pollen like crazy. I should have a good month of good weather for the bees to.make more honey and get ready for the short winter.

    I was inspecting today, and nectar was dripping when I turned the frames over....maybe that is the source of such an expression.

    If you open a free account at photobucket, it's then fairly simple to get your pics up.

    Or at least, if a technophobe like me can figure it out, must be easy!

    the other way to attach photos is to:

    select 'go advanced'

    click on the 'insert image' icon, which is the one that looks like a little picture of a tree with black squares on the corners of the icon.

    click on:

    from computer
    select files
    (select your files)
    open
    upload files

    they will appear in your reply where the cursor is positioned.
