Happy Birthday Adrienne!
We had a luncheon for her the other day....for the new baby. Ty Joseph will be here around Easter-time!
AND HAPPY FIRST DAY OF SPRING!Good Lord it's been a long time coming, and I heard we are to have a snow storm next week. I don't believe it. Anyway, last Fall I asked my Shug to pick up some Hyacinths for me. Hyacinths, Tulips, Daff's, etc. are all bulbs that go in the ground in the fall. They need the cold winter months to prepare them to bloom. Well, all they had at the store he was at, was Grape Hyacinths, so he bought them for me anyway. I don't know if you all know how to "force" bulbs, but if you don't, here is a lesson.
I decided the other day it was time to plant them.
They are doing just fine and will probably bloom about the time I am in Florida! Yup, I'm going to Florida. I decided someone is going to have to go down there and get that sunshine and bring it back up here, so I am doing it. My cousin, Vickie, is going with me. (OK I'm going with her, to visit her brother, my cousin)
In the meantime, I'm devastated to say I only have one hive left. This is a picture from last year of healthy, happy bees. I am sad to say that only one hive survived the winter. So if you live in my area, please contact me if you get a swarm. I need several as there are others that have called me wanting bees. There are none to be had. It's scary peeps. More on that later....
(can't be a beekeeper without bees-pray for my one lone hive)
