A few of you have asked me if I have received my bees yet. Sadly, it is not to bee this year. After spending a good amount of time reading this winter about beekeeping, I decided that I am going to try to work with a local beekeeper and learn some bee tending skills first. There is SO much more to it then just plopping a box of bees in the yard. Next year though for sure!
Today was a virtual Bee Bonanza at the post office! I have to admit after reading the newest Martha Stewart magazine, I became smitten with the idea of collecting antique honey pots and skeps. ("Egad...not something else"....says the ever patient husband).
This dear little Goebel honey pot was waiting for me today. Ebay makes it waaaaay to easy to become a collector of anything, doesn't it? BAAD Ebay....good Ebay! :-)
In addition to the cute little honey pot was a surprise package from 2 of my most favorite customers...Lorraine and Pat. These fabulous Canadian knitters always make me smile!
I was absolutely blown away today by their kind and generous gift. Do these ladies know me or what?
Inside the box was a beeutiful bounty of bee goodies!
There was also a bee book, a bee tea infuser....some of the most fabulous smelling tea called Blue Lady...a little honey pot and some other beeutimus goodies. Thanks Ladies!!!
