Adventures in Beekeeping Part 2

Spring seems to have sprung here at the Nest. I'm sure we have cold days to come yet but today the windows are open and more importantly there are blooming flowers to be seen. Change is in the air and that means it's time to take the next steps in preparing for our bees. They're on order for April so we needed to get their new home ready. First a couple coats of paint...

and then putting the frames together. Oh my those frames smell SO wonderful...just like honey! Now all we need are the bees!

And with the flowers starting to bloom there of course come flower pixies. These flew into the shop after a brief visit in my garden.

So what signs of Spring (or Fall for my friends in the South) are happening where you live?


  1. oh my goodness your fae folk are simply fabulous! I am in love!

  2. Great pic of the dolls and the little crocii! Saw the first redbuds today, and the flowering plum bloomed this past week.
