Bee in the moment
At this time of year, I am deep in art, craft, and garden craziness. Winter is coming and there are outside projects to finish, everything needs to be winterized, gardens cleaned, apples to can. But really all I want to do is paint, sew and read! These girls know that winter is coming and it’s now or never to finish loading the hive. We’ve tried several ways to winterize them to varying degrees of success. At the end of the month we will try a different strategy we learned last winter at a bee conference. For some reason I only have two aster plants. I started reading more about them this morning. There are an amazing variety of asters available and they begin to bloom just as the sun is heading south. I will definitely be planting more. The bees love them! Check out Floret Flowers for their beautiful selection.
