Just Arrived at Tulipwood

My dad is a master beekeeper. He builds his own box frames much to my mother’s dismay. It causes a lot of clutter in the garage. But he looks awfully amusing in his bee suit. Rather like an astronaut.

He gets his bees from Georgia, not me, the state. It’s an exciting time when they arrive. We don’t always have to order more, but sometimes you lose a hive or two and need to replenish.

From my Dad: “Just received my girls from Don ‘The Fat Beeman’ Kuchenmeister in Lulu, GA. Don raises the gentlest bees and queens in North America.”

I can’t wait to taste the honey!

    How long must we wait?

    Just a few months for the new hives to get strong. The other hives are stronger so they'll be ready sooner. We lost a few hives over the winter thus the new additions.

    I must say that they were very well behaved when they buzzed through my office….

    Ray, I love that you get to see the chicken and the bees first since they arrive to the post office!
