I've been keeping this blog for all of my beekeeping years and I am beginning my 18th year of beekeeping in April 2023. 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

Bee Christmas Tree

I've been lucky to have been given a number of bee Christmas ornaments every year. This year I had a small table tree that I decorated only with bee ornaments. Unfortunately I didn't have my camera until Christmas day so I didn't get a picture of the tree. However, I bought these ornaments from Brushy Mountain to put on the tiny tree.

My friend and fellow beekeeper in Atlanta, PN Williams, gave me this tiny hive (I am pretty sure he made it himself) so I put it on the tree as well. Isn't it a treasure? Thank you, PN.

I think these photos should be titled:  "Gulliver Visits the Lilliputian Bee Yard."

Hope all of my fellow beekeepers have had a happy holiday season!
