Nothing to sneeze about . . .

Look carefully and you will see our Dansfield Beeyard.

I am hopeful for a September honey flow.

Because look at this beautiful haven.

Every direction you look is a bee paradise.

Mostly goldenrod but a few other flowers as well.

If you look closely, I caught four workers in this picture.

They are bringing pollen and nectar in to here.

They don’t quit.

They don't take a break. (They also don't live long.)

Their work is their pleasure.

We are on vacation but they are not!

I know that there is nothing better for men than to be happy and do good while they live. That everyone may eat and drink, and find satisfaction in all his toil—this is the gift of God.
Ecclesiastes 3:12-13

I have FINALLY caught up on all your blogging! You've had birthdays and bees and bisitors (okay, that was lame, I just couldnt think of a word for visitors that started with 'B')

So glad to have met some more of your sweet family. What FUN!

Welcome back Brenda, I feel blessed to have you take time to read my blog..and yes Otis is amazing. My daughter thinks i have a special gift with animals,:-) but i don't, i have just been lucky to have smart animals around me. How nice you got to view some real live grandma Moses art work. Her sucess is very inspiring and a wonderful reminder that God will open doors when the time is right. I can see it now ...Grandma and my walker stepping through the door. :-)
