Luther Burbank Home & Gardens

The third local garden the boys and I explored was the Luther Burbank Home & Gardens, located in downtown Santa Rosa, CA. “Where world-renowned horticulturist, Luther Burbank, lived and experimented with plants for most of his 50-year career.” I really...

Quarryhill Botanical Gardens

A very popular local magazine had published the “40 Best Ways To Celebrate Summer” in their July/ August issue. I love this magazine. We live in an area that people travel from all over the world to visit, and I only know about Target & Costco. This...

The Bee Was Rambo

I should not be so excited that I got a new vacuum, but I am. I think this is the sign that I need to add a little more excitement to my life. Nothing that keeps me up past 7:30pm though. I’m not crazy. I know what you are thinking, “What about the excitement of being...

I am not a fan of the rain, but I am hoping that when the sun comes out it will be a second chance at catching a swarm of bees. I am hearing from other people that the swarms are out there and they have caught a few, but my two bait boxes are being completely ignored....

For Rent To Nice Bee Family

I have zero patience. Hubby put my beebox/ baitbox up nice and high in the yard, I added a little lemongrass oil to the entrance and on the lid to attract the bees, and I stood back to watch the bees move in. Five minutes later there are still no bees. WHAT?? The box...
