Say Hi To A New Beekeeper
I'm getting my supplies tomorrow, and picking up the bees on Sunday. I'm excited! I'm really doing it for my flower garden, though since our beagle died I've wanted a pet. From what I've read bees are smarter than beagles.
Seriously, I am feeling nervous and a little awed about establishing a relationship with these creatures. It is a responsibility, isn't it? Well, wish me luck. I look forward to keeping in touch with you all.
My name is Marie. I live in Lexington, Ma on about 3/4 an acre, and there are many gardens in the area where more visiting bees will be very welcome.
My husband says he is afraid.
