I spent most of the beautiful weekend inside, working hard trying to get the new Farm Shop updated. Luckily I needed to take pictures of the new calendars, new mugs, new bags, new wreaths...and conveniently the light outside was perfect. Actually, it was probably a little too bright, but it was a good excuse regardless ;-).
We've had several frosts now and a hard freeze last night. It dropped down to 25 last night and I lost all the marigolds in the dye garden, but the early morning sun out front helped carry the blanket flowers through. That was a huge blessing not only because I am still enjoying all the blooms, but so are all the bees.
A bee for every flower! And see the orange on the flying bee? That's the pollen they are gathering from the flowers. Covering everything with sheets at night has given them a few extra days to load up their pantry. I'm glad to help!
