I've been keeping this blog for all of my beekeeping years and I am beginning my 19th year of beekeeping in April 2024. Now there are more than 1300 posts on this blog. Please use the search bar below to search the blog for other posts on a subject in which you are interested. You can also click on the "label" at the end of a post and all posts with that label will show up. At the very bottom of this page is a list of all the labels I've used.

Even if you find one post on the subject, I've posted a lot on basic beekeeping skills like installing bees, harvesting honey, inspecting the hive, etc. so be sure to search for more once you've found a topic of interest to you. And watch the useful videos and slide shows on the sidebar. All of them have captions. Please share posts of interest via Facebook, Pinterest, etc.

I began this blog to chronicle my beekeeping experiences. I have read lots of beekeeping books, but nothing takes the place of either hands-on experience with an experienced beekeeper or good pictures of the process. I want people to have a clearer picture of what to expect in their beekeeping so I post pictures and write about my beekeeping saga here.Master Beekeeper Enjoy with me as I learn and grow as a beekeeper.

April 18, 2006

Becky said I should name the hives so I named the salmon colored one Bermuda for the sands of Bermuda and the yellow one Destin. I hope the bees from Destin don’t want to move to Bermuda. The bees in Bermuda are eating their sugar syrup. The bees in Destin are not.


  1. hello linda.
    i came across your blog through blogs of note...like you said it was sitting right on the top.....the only thing i know about bees is what i read when i was in school....meaning that i hardly know a thng....but it was fascinating going through your blog...and feeling a delight in discovering the functioning of the lives of bees.
    the most amazing thing tha struck me was the effort,expertise and care you put in your work.....and the enjoyment you derive from it....what made you fall in luv with bees???
    i wish you success...and luv to both you and the bees..it was great reading your blog.
    gud work.

  2. Nice names. I will need to think of a name for my hives
