Home Again

Well I am late posting as we took a leisurely drive home, stopping at Cracker Barrel for Breakfast, then pausing in Decatur to go to the library then picked up mail at the post office.

Wow...what a pile of mail we had and most of it went directly into the circular file. lol I did have many lovely Easter cards which I will share with you one day this week. Friends are the BEST.

Here are a few pictures from Grimmwood.

On Thursday Leta and I took a stroll to visit the bees. Yes, we are now proud owners of TWO Hives.

Our first hive on the left is still recovering from a swarm last June so it will take a while for us to see a lot of progress in the Honey Making endeavor. Although we did bring home one frame that had a good bit of honey in it. We might get a pint if we are lucky but it is still a big day for us novice bee keepers.

I found this cute flag at Fiddleheads Garden Center in Dalton, Georgia.


And finally a picture that Leta took from across the pond at the bee hive headquarters....



I love the reflection of the house and the wall in the pond.  This might be a new notecard for my personal stationery.

I am slowly playing catch up on social media so I hope by tomorrow I will have time to visit all my favorite bloggers.

Missed you! Glad you're back. :-)

Beekeepers keep several hives at my husband's family ranch in Central Idaho, and we are lucky that we get to keep some of the honey. It's soooo delicous, isn't it?

Welcome home! I kept checking yesterday morning to see if you were back yet, but didn't try again later in the day. I'm glad you are at home. I missed you!

Oh, Arlene, that picture would make a lovely note card. It is gorgeous...so peaceful and calm. We kept bees...a lot of bees...before we moved here. The local orchard growers would rent them from us to pollinate their fruit trees. Since moving here 20 years ago we've not had success due to how cold it gets in the winter here. Fresh honey is the VERY best. I'm sure you know this, but I've read in several different sources that if you use the honey from your own area it will help build your immune system when it comes to allergies.

Congrats on the bees! My fil kept bees when my husband was a child and they are hard work. I always wanted bees and chickens but we moved to a neighborhood with an HOA last year so I'll have to live vicariously!
