I've been keeping this blog for all of my beekeeping years and I began my 13th year of beekeeping in April 2018. 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.

Really Good Video about Plight of Bees

I love to visit Ted.com. There are inspiring and informative talks to be heard there. Often they last about 20 minutes and I always walk away curious about something I didn't know about before.

Here's a good video about the bees that a friend posted on Beemaster.com


  1. Ted.com is a wonderful site. I first became familiar with it when a friend turned me on to Jill Bolte Taylor's speech. I was overcome with heartfelt joy & humility. I do believe that conference was help in Monterey, my hometown, and a stones throw away from me now. Perhaps I will be fortunate enough to attend a conference there some day!

    Thank you for sharing that. I have been considering converting my lawn back to a mini wildflower area for quite some time and this just helps me make the decision all the more.

  3. Interesting video! After the one cold snap we had here in Texas, my hummingbirds quit coming around the feeders and for about a week now the bees have been enjoying them..As the only bee expert I know :) I thought I would ask you if that's ok? It's a homemade nectar that has a sugar base. Hope you have a great evening Linda.


  4. Kathy, the only problem I have had with the hummingbird feeder is that the bees drown in mine. The sugar syrup at this time of year stimulates brood rearing and while that's not good in Atlanta, I imagine with as little cold weather as you have in Texas, it would do no harm there. If you were a beekeeper harvesting honey, sugar syrup is not nectar and the product created in the hive from sugar syrup is not real honey.
