The Honey Month, Day 24 (2/24/2011)

eta: Link.

"Day 24 - Apricot Creamed Honey

Colour: Today's booze-related colour is lager, specifically Beck's.

Smell: In keeping with creamed honey for, more belly-button fuzz!

Taste: A juicy sweetness, fresh; the honey's liquidy, and the sweetness has a liquid edge to it as well. It doesn't dry out the mouth at all, and calls up fruit without tasting specifically of apricot."

Oooo, this one is nice. I don't know if allegorical is an entirely accurate descriptor, but I'm going to go with it anyway. The bees are an allegory for the restorative back and forth of romantic love - sometimes partner A supports partner B, and sometimes the opposite is true.

This is a lovely and sweet piece; I'd pair it up with the Cranberry Honey story from the beginning of the month - a diptych, if you will.
