From time to time I like to decorate
 the baking station that nobody bakes at
do you remember me telling you about the dream I had before we looked at
822...the one about me growing lavender and having honey from bees?

and then when we came to look there was an actual wild bee hive that we had to get someone to come remove from our picnic table? be brought back when our yard was completed?

and later when digging around in the yard putting in a new water line
we uncovered this old glass bottle?

maybe I'm just craving spring

(I'm not craving to bake)

but I just love bees

and hives

little bo peep even took a college class and
gave me her books

I think me and bees are M.F.E.O.
(made for each other)

I can't wait to have a real bee hive where I really go gather honey
did you know that if you eat honey that is raised within a 7 mile radius you won't have allergies?

kind of makes sense

so over in the white dish corner on a cold January day
I made myself a little reminder

spring days are not that far off
and my dream of bees and honey

and summer's fragrant lavender

are enough for now

it will be here before you know it!

Unas imágenes preciosas y las abejas son una señal de la primavera pero mejor no tenerlas en la mesa de casa

Oh my goodness BEES....We have Bees here quite often... and I am so scared of them..I don't want to come across a Killer Bee that's for sure!!

I can smell that Lavender from over reminds me of long summer days!! Have a good week-end :)

I love bees too! I love your collection of bee things, the bottle is an omen, it was just meant to bee, pardon the pun but that was house was waiting for you, I'm sure that house has a soul,

I love lavender and I love honey Gina, I have a pot of lavender in my terrace because insects eat all my plants and someone told me that if you have lavender they don't attack your plants, and we eat honey everyday, we buy it in "Rancho Cortesano" a place very close Jerez where a family have their own hives and bees and they sell everything made with honey even cosmetics. Have you ever baked a chicken, with honey??? It's delicious


Saturday, raining and raining here

Treasure hunting in your own backyard! That jar is awesome...You are destined to have bees around you (hope that's a good thing).

We have friends who are beekeepers and their wild honey is awesome.
