Honeybees!

 

Yesterday our new top bar hive with established honeybee colony was finally delivered (after a delay due to the extremely hot conditions earlier in the week.)  We’ve had a great time watching them through the glass viewing windows on the side of the hive, as well as seeing them pollinating flowers in the yard.  When they return to the hive, their route is over the top of the house, down into the yard, make a hard right past the bird feeder pole, and back into the hive entrance.  It’s very interesting to see them all follow this same flightpath.

September in Pictures

I haven’t post on here in over a month, so I thought I’d do a quick update of some of the things that took place during September that I remembered to photograph:

 

 

There’s more from the last week or so, but my camera is dead at the moment.

My New House

…I wish.

Alex and I went to the Waterford Fair a few weeks ago, and while we were there I picked out the house I want, the yard I want, and the arbor I want.  Never mind that none of them belong to the same people, nor are for sale.

Chrysalis Vineyards VIP Party

The 2010 VIP Party at Chrysalis Vineyards in Middleburg, Va was June 19th, and it was the first one since we became members.  It was quite lovely: there was lots of delicious food plated and offered as a buffet, with lots of “courses” from which to pick and choose, and go back to sample again!  The wine was also flowing for the duration of the event, with no limit on the number of glasses per person.  (We only drank a small amount, since we had to drive ourselves back.  Next year we need to bring along a DD!)  Here are a couple of pictures from the evening.
