In my blog I plan to chat about nature, crafts, baking, gardening, beekeeping, family, and whatever else seems appropriate at the time. Sit back, relax, and enjoy!

This is a picture of me and my niece, Taylor, when she was about three and I was about 40 something. It was taken on July 4 weekend, 2006, at Conner Prairie. I LOVE going to Conner Prairie in Fishers, IN, and listening to the symphony, especially on July 4 weekend. They have reinactors and they have a beautiful fireworks show for the finale', including canons! We always take a picnic and decorations and make an event out of it. It's very crowded but being at Conner Prairie for July 4 just reminds me of what it would have been like back when people were patriotic and really, really cared about our country. When people would actually stop what they were doing, put their right hand over their heart, and listen, when they heard The Star Spangled Banner. This is a truly wonderful event that I hope everyone can experience at least once or Make it a tradition!
Now, this picture was posted because I was "tagged" in a photo challenge. Here are the rules....
1) Go to your photo files, select the 8th photo folder. 2) Select the 8th photo in that folder. 3) Post that photo along with the story behind it. 4) Then challenge 8 blogging friends to do the same! Easy peasy!
I'm 59. A wife, a beekeeper, a gardener, and a crafter. I like to read; novels and old cookbooks with history in them are my favorites. I've been married for 23 years to a loving, hard-working man, who makes me laugh. We have a little dog that was found in a park, and given to us. He is a boy, but has a girl name. Sorry Dixie. (could be uni-sex I suppose)
We have decided to take a journey together and build a new home on some land we purchased a few years ago. We are building the home ourselves. In 2016 we moved to the main level of our new home. I've created "The House on Hilltop Farm" blog, so I can record the house building journey. The Bee Lady from Hilltop Farm is about everything else going on in my life.
Nice to meet you.
So, I showed my niece my new (old) camper and she said, "I love the name coral belle. Coral reminds me of the ocean and the color of the camper reminds me of the color of the water in the ocean." (Out of the mouths of babes!)
