Today my husband Mike and our two middle girls took a trip to Wausau, Fl and picked up a couple of "nucs" These, as I understand are like little mini bee colonys.
Each nuc has a queen, a bunch of worker bees and some frames, already started with wax and honey and all the things little bees need to get a big hive going. Mike had already purchased a couple of bee boxes. He put them together and painted them. He and our girls took them across the street and placed them between our two little ponds. Here they should get plenty of sunshine and water. We have so much vegatation growing around there that we should have some fat, happy little honey producers in no time. This is a project my husband has been wanting to do for many years and I'm so happy this day has finally come for him. Send up a pray that all will go well and that the giant gator he saw this weekend doesn't like honey or bee hives!!
Below I have posted several pictures of honey bees. These are all from photographer I have discovered at Etsy.com. I will put the photographers etsy shop address and the link to each picture below each photographers picture. I hope you will take the time to visit each shop and maybe take a look around. There are some amazing photographers at etsy and if you are in the market for some awesome pictures you will surely not be wasting your time shopping there. Oh, and I have a couple of etsy shops too, ya know, if your so inclined to take a peek.
I hope you all have a marvelous week. Come on back soon for new posts on our new Bee Farm. (Bee Farm name coming soon...)
My God bless you all this week and may we praise His name forever and ever.
