I've been keeping this blog for all of my beekeeping years and I am beginning my 16th year of beekeeping in April 2021. 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. Along the way, I've passed a number of certification levels and am now a
Master Beekeeper Enjoy with me as I learn and grow as a beekeeper.

Video of my beeyard

This is a video of my beeyard on the deck behind my house. I set up a tripod with my digital camera on it to film the activity at Proteus. I love how golden the bees look in the sun.

Since I took this in the middle of the afternoon and wasn't fully suited, I didn't take the camera closer to the other two hives because I didn't want to walk, carrying the tripod, through the buzzing busy flight paths. (I usually go behind a tree on the deck to go to the other hives when Proteus is this active.)

It's fun to hear and see the bees buzzing!

Hope you enjoyed it!

  3. Boy! Linda your bee hives are building up strong. I really enjoyed the video and getting to see someone else bees in action. :) Thank you for sharing.

  4. Wow! Your Proteus hive is really active--it's good to see that as a reference, so if my hive gets that busy, I know that that is normal.
