welcome to our farmhouse…life is good

Tuesday, June 5

starting a buzz...

First, a friend gifted me with this lovely tea towel...


then, Little Man gave me some sparkle for my birthday...


and I've been reading, re-reading, and marking up these books for over a year...


and then I thought about it...it was a sign.

No, that's silly, it wasn't a sign...so I hesitated.

I thought about it some more...

did even more reading and talked to beekeeper friends.

I continued to hesitate...for several weeks.
 
Then this morning, brain in a fog from lack of sleep and still bleary eyed, I placed an order for an English Garden Hive (at least I think I did...as I said, lack of sleep was a big factor!)

It will look like this...

but of course, I have dreams of it (and our yard) looking like this...

I'm sure it'll completely transform our entire backyard into an English cottage garden; right?
I'll be asking the kids if they'd like "a spot of tea" (herbal, of course) and calling my mom,
"Mum"...I'm sure of it.


Oh well, a girl can dream...here's to our next big adventure on the farm!
