The Bees Knees

The Bees Have Arrived! Yes that's me holding a box full of aprox 10,000 hot and angry bees...I'm telling the Hubs through clenched teeth to hurry up and take the picture..I was a little nervous! Got them in the hive and now I'm just trying not to go out there every day and look at them...which is tough, they are so cool to watch. Nobody has been stung, the kids were pleasantly surprised to find out they will not be attacked when playing outside. Because they came so late this year, the chances of me actually getting any honey is slim, the bees have to make at least 80 pounds of honey
just so they have something to eat over the winter. But next year i should have plenty and some to spare!


  1. Hmmm I wondering if my hubs will ever allow me to have bees - I fear anaphylactic reaction to bee stings on my medic alert bracelet will put him off !! !! !!
    I think the photo of your bee hat and tiara needs to be on your blog though xxx

  2. I can't find that picture on my computer! it's quite fabulous though, oh and yes, i think the whole allergic reaction might put him off beekeeping! Today the bees were very feisty as it's been hot hot hot here the last few days.
