THANK YOU SALTY.  My oh my, look at the green grass and flowers,,,,, so nice to see it?s green somewhere.  All I see is brown grass, brown leaves, huge bare hardwoods with a few evergreen cedar here and there, and a lake full of those rod bending striped bass.  So I adore looking at flowers posted by beeks on BeeMaster.

Salty, please keep posting the flowers and greenery.  It warms my heart to look at the pics.  Again, thanks, Salty.

Socks?  What is the deal, where is Barefoot!!!

Blessings

Bless the Beekeepers.  Dealing with venomous insects takes courage, patience, dedication and a desire to be with nature.

Nice salty... But not nearly as entertaining as when you posted about running around the yard slapping bees and being stung on the whoo-hoo. 😉

I?m glad I?m still here-
I look around the yard realizing I?ve started keeping bees after 7 months and think what have I done?
The responsibility I?ve learned they need makes me worried if I?m ready for my first real spring of my bees and not purchased.
I trust my friends here will help.
Thanks
 Nuck- good on them!!
