We zerve and tend our Dear Queen Mother..

Zzometimez we Zoarm..

and follow our Queen
becauze she haz left a new queen behind

and then gather..

Zometimez WAY out of reach and then we leave..
(zee uz waaay up at the top of the middle tree)?

our dear Queen Mother is in the middle

we protect her

 zometimez we are right in reach   
and we are collected and get to ztay in a  
                                                             new Royal Palaze Hive

After about a month or two
the Honey Bear Keeper givez us another level
to our palazz called a Zuper
zo we can grow az a royal family

He izz a Gangzter

He zmokez uzz

Zometimez the keeperz get new gear and gadgetz

In late zummer they check uz

"again with the zmoke"!!

zometimez if the hive iz not ztrong
wax mothz try to invade

Be sober, be vigilant;
 because your adversary
 the devil, as a roaring lion,
walketh about, seeking
whom he may devour:
                                1 Peter 5:8

 We do not always zzting...
...zo long az you ztay calm zzlow and quite...
and never uze perfume...

Zome timezz thiz Bear getz a zzting...  
to remind him of who we are...

The keeper'z "Queen Mother" likes to help

  She keeps an eye on everyone in her household,
and keeps them all busy and productive.
Her children respect and bless her;  
proverbs 31:27-29

zo delectable !!

we collect our left overz
(under a watchful eye of the keeperz)

We keep warm in winter by clustering 
and flapping our wingz

It'z alwayz good to 
remove the znow from our doorway

zo on a nice day we can come outzide to 
powder our noze!

(like any girls we go in pairs)

It'z not a good idea to put our hive on an old sewing
machine bottom...
 We fell! It wazzz Zuper COLD!

But help did come and we zurvived!!


 When Zpring comez we..

repair and ztart a new
Beloved, I wish above all things
that thou mayest prosper
and be in health,
even as thy soul prospereth.

  1. Dear Linnie,

    I didn't know the 16th was a day for bees; now I do! Thank you for sharing photos of the fun and work of raising honey. I can vouch for the love you put into your girlzzz, for the sweetness and fruitiness of your honey is quite amazing.



  2. Good morning Mildren, Owen, Linnie and Mr. Bee Keeper! OHHHHHHH LINNIE! How fun it is to "visit" your homestead where magic lives! This was such a delight to watch how you live and help the bee population! We here in the Twin Cities have seen an increase in the bee AND butterfly population because people are planting "Bee friendly" gardens. We even saw a "Bee Hotel" in one garden.

    I JUST LOVE Mildred and Owen with their bee keeper gear! teeehehehehee

    Tea Rat is brave and would love to try to keep bees but Rattus would not have it. He says it's best that Tea Rat reserve the honey for tea, and to go to the shoppe to buy his honey! teeeee

    Wishing you a happy weekend, Linnie! Anita

  3. teehee....those two bee-keeping mouse are TEA RAT'S CUP OF TEA! Oh Linnie, don't you just love (to play?) And you are correct; in Nowhere, there are no clocks and no boundaries. Anything goes there! teeehehee....

    I really need to post again, maybe even today! KEEP WATCH!

    Thank you sweet friend, for coming by!

  4. Oh my dear i stand in awe! I have yet to even fill my hive, let alone accomplish all that you and Gar Bear have done. I am so impressed with the beauty of it all; the swarm, the worker bees the gathering of the honey and then actually jarring it! You are my heros! And I have eaten all that honey you sent me last year, I can attest to it's pure tastiness. Jeri

    LINNIE! came to see what Tea Rat ordered on-line...his favorite PIN-UP! Rattus does NOT approve because yes, she is a distraction to the boys in the cottage! Tea Rat is a big love bug and just adores Penny's mice, but his one true love is Miss Moussie, the creation of the Dutchess. But she is a single mouse, never to marry. Tea Rat did send her an engagement ring once (he really did, a mini diamond ring!)

    Oh the fun of Nowhere, and the friends who visit. Thank you!

  6. Ha love the mouziekins in their bee outfits! what a great post we know people through 4H who do the bee keeping. Just such a fascinating and amazing process. ~thanks for Sharing Heather

  7. Lovely post and was great to see all the activity of your hive and homestead. One of my Uncles had bees and I used to love watching him work.
    You can't beat the liquid gold and from the honeycomb - delicious.
    Thanks for sharing and visiting me.
    Hope you are enjoying the week

  8. What a fabulous and informative post.
    I very much enjoyed it !
    Thanks so much for taking the time to share all of this.

  9. What a wonderful post. I so enjoyed it! The pictures are just lovely.
    Blessings sweet friend,

  10. Wow, your bees are wonderful! I really enjoyed the seasonal photos. My husband is interested in beekeeping but little by little we will get there! To harvest your own pure honey sounds amazing! And the lovely by-products you can make with the beeswax is exciting to me too! So much blessings! Thanks for sharing this on the Art of Home-Making Mondays :) Have a peaceful week in His tender loving care...

  11. Very interesting post on your bee keeping. I know very little about it, but am so interested in knowing more. My DIL's father is a bee keeper, so she has shared a bit. And the Moussiekin family are even specialist in the business, now how about that. Shame on me for taking so long to visit you my friend, I did not know what I was missing, but surely knew it was bound to be good indeed. Blezzings.... to you all

  12. You have the most interesting posts!!!! Somehow I missed this one till today. I loved seeing you and hubby and your beautiful home and your lovely bees. We love honey too, and did think about having some bees...maybe someday!
    Love ya!

  13. How interesting and such great photos of a year of bee keeping. I have some great honey here right now made by friends.(well the bees really!)

  14. Love the web page. Living in relationship and union with Christ - my heartbeat.

  15. So sorry your old sewing machine stand fell over. It did look charming - but "we live & learn." And it appears that you've learn quite a bit about bee-keeping. What a picturesque experience you given us as well as practical. Oh the honey indeed looks zo delectable - I agree. If I were there I might partake of so much honey for tea that, like Pooh Bear, I may have trouble fitting through the hole of a rabbit's door.
