Four seasons of life, mine and the honeybees, in the garden and in the mountains of Western North Carolina
Experience is a brutal teacher. But you learn, my God, do you learn.
Stream In January

This is not an exciting video, but I was experimenting with how to actually post. It's just bees flying on a cool, Sunday afternoon. I was surprised to see them since it's been so rainy, but I guess they were as anxious as I was to get out. Anyway, it took forever to upload this video, but now I know how to do it. Still so much to learn about bees, cameras, blog.......
Will there be bees in heavenly places? Will there be bees? Winging their way through the golden spaces To fruitify the eternal trees That yield their sweet life-giving store Month-by-month forevermore Will soft bee music haunt the stream Whose waters shine with crystal glow And will they come to where lilies gleam To sip the eternal nectar flow? Lord, Thou dids' love our earthly places Birds and flowers and shady trees Let there be bees in heavenly places Let there be bees.
I'm a Master Gardener and Certified Beekeeper in the mountains of Western North Carolina. I've been gardening for as long as I can remember and just completed my second season as a beekeeper. I've always loved being in my organic garden and I'm totally hooked on beekeeping.
I also love where I live. There are 4 distinct seasons in the mountains, although Mother Nature does not always respect the calendar, and each bring changes to my garden. All four seasons are beautiful. I hope you'll enjoy my view of life in the garden, beeyard and beyond in these beautiful hills.
