I can just barely see these new neighbors through the trees across my cove. Jason and Amy are starting a small bee colony!
They are not majorly going into the honey business; they just want enough for themselves and family and friends. Lucky us! I’ll round up some mason jars for sure.
I am also learning a bit about bees from them as they go along. They are mighty interesting critters, and are obviously very vital to the pollination of crops. I think they will be quiet neighbors as they go about their honey business. I won’t bother them if they won’t bother me!
The wee boys are excited about this whole process, but they are especially looking forward to their first taste of real home made honey.
Sweet! Well, except that Jason has already gotten stung once. Ouch! But that is one of the hazards of being a beekeeper.
So that’s our newest excitement here in paradise. Have a fabulous Friday, y’all!
