  3. Fabulous!! I love that they are so uniform-- very bee-like!

    We raise bees with two other families, and while all the regular hives died, we have a swarm that moved into the shed between the door and the bee suits!

  7. Tera, You never cease to leave me with my mouth open, and muttering, "OMGoodness!" Love your new header (so you!!) and this bee painting made me grin big time. You are a gift to the world, my dear talented one who should be wearing a crown, too. I have a gift for you. An Opie gift. Remember when I told you he would soon be up to some new tricks that would make you split a gut? Well he did it. Come see. LOLZZZZZ

  13. Takes me back to much fun and much pain. Trapped many in a holly hawk blossom but let go; fun. Brother rammed a hive with pole and left me behind at age 7 and shut the gate. Dozens of stingers tweezered out by mom; pain.
    But, I enjoy your bees and real ones too.
