Can You Hear It?


The bees, they are a buzzing and more bees arriving soon to fill new hives.  

Spring, it is a welcome thing.  

"I like pulling on a baggy bee suit, forgetting myself and getting as close to the bees' lives as they will let me, remembering in the process that there is more to life than the merely human."

  4. It is amazing how eating local honey helps with allergies! We buy a gallon at a time and eat a spoonful everyday.
    Enjoy a beautiful day.

  13. I complain of allergies, but I am oh so happy that spring finally showed her pretty face. I do love to hear the bees too, especially since there is such a crisis with them right now. Bee careful!

  27. When you are close to the hive the bees buzzing is a sound that tells you that they are busy at work.
    My bees swarmed in the last few days (sigh). Lost half my hive. They swarmed up ino a oak tree way up high. The bees that are left are working hard to restablish thier hive.
