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. Along the way, I've passed a number of certification levels and am now a!

No more Boredom in Beedom

We've had three rainy days in a row in Atlanta and the bees have been confined to their hives. I saw a few venturing out in the rain, but mostly it's been all quiet on the bee front. Today both hives are a-buzz with lots of activity. This picture doesn't begin to capture the energy of all the comings and goings.

I don't imagine that bees have emotions, but if they did, I'll bet it's very boring in the winter when they stay in the hive huddled together with only the job of keeping each other warm. I expect they "feel" some of that on rainy days as well. Posted by Picasa
