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!


  1. I would say, go for it! Beekeeping is a fun and rewarding thing to do. Love the tea towel and your new bracelet.

    1. Thanks so much, Jean. Sounds like you know a thing or two about bees...I'm happy to hear any advice you'd like to share!

  2. Oh if it were that easy to transform our yards to those beautiful English gardens. Still a fun venture to be headed in.
