Hi! Here are few photos of the sunflowers 🌻 at home and photos of bees in my home hive.
Sorry about my lack of recent posts! I am still around and my bees 🐝 are healthy.
Above is a photo of one of my several sunflowers 🌻 in my yard. I have taken a bit of break on the blog but, my hope over the next few weeks is to post the many photos and stories that I have documented over the last few months so please stay tuned!
On Sunday, we got some work done. We rehabilitated and collected honey frames from hives to start again for the spring.
Above are photos of me scraping the excess propolis and honey comb. I just got 10 packages yesterday and this morning, Warren and woke up at 5 am to do the install of around 7 of the hives.
I will post more photos and my progress in the next few days.
If you want to see me in action, I will be hosting an event at Real Food Farms on Friday, May 18th at 4 pm.
I met Will one of the farm managers at the site to look at the hives. We discovered one of was lost during the winter.
Will was excited to see the honey frames and posed for me above. I will be back to the Farm because they have donated equipment to BeeMore for use and rehabilitation.
I will be holding an event here in May stay tuned for more information.
Have a great Sunday!
People often ask me how and why I started beekeeping and BeeMore and it all goes back to the garden. This morning, I dropped by the offices before an Earth day event and I was inspired by these seedlings which started off like this…or probably more like this last summer
So it’s great to see the early evolution of these plants before we put them in the garden when the weather warms a but more.
Happy Earth Day!
Happy Bee Friday!
Watching the bees fly into the hive today on their pollen gathering journey, I realized that the statistic that can fly up to 15 mph is very accurate. These ladies were moving so fast that I could not capture their speed. The recent brisk spring temperatures have made move faster but today was another good sign the hive is doing well after 2 weeks and will be ready to move to a community garden site.
Bee back with you soon!
BeeMore was chosen for the 1st Make a Mark in Baltimore at City Garage. As part of this process, the team of three designers developed a new logo and style guide for BeeMore. Below is the new logo.
I wanted to express my gratitude to Julie Kostic, Michelle Martir and Sean Heavey for the great work! They did all of this work in one day.
I really love my new logo and you will see more on the site.
It’s mid April and spring has finally arrived. I came out this morning to check in at the garden in Park Heights to find that one of my fellow beekeepers new hives are doing well.
The recent change in weather and blooms are out!
More updates to come!
