The Good, The Bad and The Ugly

The storm clouds have parted and the sun has come out! This is exactly what you want to see on a sunny February morning:   Bees are buzzing in and out. Some have large loads of pollen. I can tell that some appear to be young bees, which means that healthy brood is...

Learning To Fly

“May I have your attention please? Can all newbees please report to the main entrance immediately for flight class? Again, all newbees report to the main entrance for flight class!” I’m a bit of a Chicken Little when it comes to our bees. Except instead of the sky...

Ohhh The Relief…

As Katrina has already shared with you in the previous post, I was stung multiple times the other day when we ventured into the hive. I take full responsibility. I was a little over confident thinking I could just mosey on in there with a short sleeve t-shirt on. Well...

The Girls Were Ready For Their Close-up

I finally did it! I finally rented a macro lens to checkout! I waited for a weekend when my daughter would be home from school. She’s a photography hobbyist as well and I wanted to get a second opinion. I’m normally a portrait photographer and she is more...

Bees Aren’t The Only Things We’re Saving!

Baby Bees On Board! Pick-up Day Is Finally Here!

All the classes, planning, talking, worrying and preparation had lead to this day, Thursday May 12th 2016, the day we picked-up our bees. I was as giddy as a school girl all day. The bottled up excitement nearly lead me to tears more than once throughout the day. It...

Time For A Favorite… Burt’s Bees

As if Burt’s Bees isn’t awesome enough, (I’m addicted to their Beeswax Lip Balm with peppermint), they are currently doing a Bring Back The Bees campaign. For every purchase of one of their limited edition lip balms or for every “b”-less...

On The Hunt For Lavender

I went shopping today. My mission was Provence Lavender and Clover. The nursery was full of Spanish lavender but no Provence. I have this problem ever year. I’m not quite sure why Provence lavender is so scarce around here. I know they will eventually come in, but I’m...
