Doesn't everyone love finding a book to sink into and enjoy?
That is so cool. I've always been interested in the subject so seeing someone else doing it is very cool.
Looks like a great hobby. I hope you get a lot of honey. Good luck with your run.
I have a healthy respect for bees. As a kid, I lived on a farm and we used bees to pollinate the almond orchards. I would very carefully walk amongst them...curious, but cautious.Thanks for sharing the story of how the hives are created.Here's MY SATURDAY SNAPSHOT
Bees would make me run. Far away. ;)My morning snapshot
Bees, kids, and a half marathon. Great job. Doing something for yourself, like a half marathon, is such a great example for the kids. Good luck. Here's Mine
Wow! Terrific hobby! Bees are in need of help from we humans! The bee populations have been dropping over the years, as pesticides and competitors deplete the hives. I'm so glad folks like you are keeping the craft of beekeeping alive and well!
I've never known someone who keeps bees, though it seems to come up for characters I "know" surprisingly often. Good luck with your half-marathon!
Good hobby and family project. I grew up chasing bees and enjoying honey from the comb.Have an enjoyable half-marathon.
What a fabulous thing to do! My husband grew up helping his dad keep and tend hives. The fresh honey at the end of the season was always so delicious :)
Good luck with the 1/2 tomorrow! Which one are you doing? The half is one of my favorite distances. Will def check in next week for those photos!
That looks like a great hobby! I can totally understand wanting to keep it away from the kids though. I've never seen sugar water sprayed on them, only smoke. Sugar water seems far kinder. Good luck on your run!
I wish I could send your husband the bees that have taken up residence next-door. They're so thick around all my birdbaths and fountains that it makes me nervous to be on my own property!
What a great hobby! A friends father used our backyard for his hives for a few years and it was neat to watch him.Congrats and good luck with your first 1/2 marathon!!Here's My Photo
Sugar keeps me calm too! Sort of. What great pictures and a fantastic learning experience for the kids. Happy weekend!
How cool! Does he plan to process his own honey as well?Good luck with the marathon!Here's my Snapshot: http://myreadersblock.blogspot.com/2012/04/saturday-snapshot-april-28.html
I'm afraid of bees but think this must be an interesting hobby for those "brave of heart".
How fabulous! What an adventure.
