THE ART OF THE BEEHIVE

Oh the power of Pinterest and the ideas you can find....
so inspiring

this was my dream hive

this is my reality hive


with a little help from 
I was able to kind of get what I wanted....not sure about the bright colors until the yard is in full bloom...at that point, if needed, I will age the hive to look more like the one I found on Pinterest

UNLESS
 my bees have arrived out of nowhere, looking for me and Mona Lisa and Van Gogh's Poppies

did you know that bees are attracted to lemon grass also?
I just so happened to have some extra lemon grass in my 
herb class #5
I made a lemon grass sun tea and drizzled this near the opening


this might be my new bee outfit
do you like it?
Our Heritage Days is coming up soon...better get busy finding the right fabric!

I like this

and this is pretty cool too!

wow....thank you pinterest for keeping my interest

and giving me all kinds of ideas to make my hive
the best on the block!

Well, how cool is that? We had bees on the farm where I grew up and my uncle was a beekeeper so we were well supplied with honey- xo Diana

Gina,
Your inspiration of the beehive/art hive guided you to one that is very cool. I also really think that altar is wonderful.
Lemon grass never knew that! Lemon grass tea is hand brewed for bees! Following you and your bee-utiful new hobby will be fun.
xoxo,
Vera

I love that you have a beehive, and I love how you designed yours. It is so whimsical! You will have to keep us informed on what is entailed and how much work is needed. Are you getting chickens too? I can't have chickens with kitties. Have a wonderful week. xoxo Su
