Just sharing some late summer flowers and a few bee shots.
Enjoy the summer and stay safe!
On a less bee-related topic, it is the second year that my grapevine produced. I am now trying to think of what to do with my bounty.
The next step will be creating a jam/jelly if I don’t eat them all. This year’s garden has been tough on cucumbers. I found one today…
I will add an update on what these grapes turn into if I don’t eat them all.
Bee Safe! Michelle
Despite the summer heat, this has been a good year for sunflowers. I tried to grow some exotic colors but the seeds that did the best we’re the Mammoth ones that I purchased at the Dollar Tree.
I love this time of year, so that I can watch the many pollenators in my yard! Enjoy the summer and bee safe!
With the summer heat, the weeds have gotten out of control. Here are some photos of our early morning work at Park Heights Community Health Alliance.
Got some work done at the Park Heights Community Health Alliance today. Here are some photos from our work.
It’s almost June and the hard work of the spring is paying off. Here are some shots of my pollinator-friendly plants.
I thought I would start sharing the progress of the garden as well as the bees.
The hive continues to live even though it’s small. The recent pollen should help them to grow over the next few weeks. I will keep posting…
Here are some early photos of the garden this year. My this year is to grow things that we love to eat and herbs and flowers to feed the bees 🐝
Sorry for the radio silence on the site and lack of new posts! This winter has been busy.
The weird winter weather was not good for my bees. Sadly, I lost my last hive a few weeks ago so I am in a rebuilding mode.
This seasons post may focus more on my garden and pollinator friendly activities. I will still be a sources of support for new keepers but, I will probably curtail my number of hives.
Below are some shots of the winter aftermath.
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!
