It is recommended to check on your hives every 10 days. Being away on holiday, it has been nearly a month since we last checked the bees. I am happy to say that we have no disease nor any swarming, but the grass and weeds have grown incredibly! Not the best thing, but easy to fix! Today Elyjah and I moved some brood frames up into the top super to encourage the queen to begin laying up there. She is a strong laying queen so we decided to have a two brood box rather than just the one. I don’t expect a ton of honey from this particular hive, so just focusing on strengthening the hive for a successful winter and hopefully an abundant summer next year. We shall see! . . . . #beekeepingfamily #savethebees #livethedream #toomanyweeds #lovemykrazies #beekeeper #beelieve #justrollwithit

Morning - time marches on and I forgot to share yesterday 😯😯😯, how am I going to fit all the 50 bees in? So here’s the Large Gorse Mining Bee made with a vintage powder compact, wool, embroidery thread, and vintage gold thread. It’s companion piece was made by @louisacrispin (see picture 3) and her drawn companion piece is just stunning, I love that Louisa has highlighted the beauty of the Blackthorn, one of my all time favourite plants. If you fancy taking part in 2019 forms are available at lydianeedle.com. . . . . #fiftybees #environmentalist #environment #blackthorn #interconnectedness #savethebees #bee #bees #eco #ethicalart #leaveonlyfootprints #vintage #upcycled #gold #beelover #beesofinstagram #paperartist #drawing

What do beekeepers do in winter? -Apart from going on a well deserved holiday someplace where the sun is shining, we prepare for the season to come. Here we are dipping boxes in paraffin wax and then painting them to preserve the timber and make them last longer. #urbanbeekeeping #beehives #winterbeekeeping #springiscoming

When it’s cold and windy in winter, you don’t see much of the bees coming in and out of the hive, but I spotted these three cuties huddling in together 🐝

昨年から耕している畑の草刈りをしました。枝豆に間違われましたがヒマワリです。昨年よりも綺麗に咲きそうです。 I cut down the fields we borrowed since last year. It was sunflower though it was mistaken for Edamame(japanese bean). It seems to be more beautiful than last year. #お花畑プロジェクト #玉川大学 #シンジェンタ #雪印種苗 #野村養蜂場 #savethebees #instagood #photooftheday #beautiful #八米 #HACHIBEI #はちみつ #ハチミツ #honey #国産 #新潟県産 #天然 #養蜂 #beekeeper #beekeeping #cute #foodpic #農業 #日本 #japan #新潟県 #阿賀野市 #today #ひまわり畑 #sunflower

Found this little dude on my car, too exhausted to fly. I've brought him home and given him some sugar water, hopefully he will pull through. #savethebees

Les lavandes poussent, puis se mettent en boutons, fleurissent, et finalement se mettent vraiment à vivre quand elles sont recouvertes d'insectes de toute sorte plus la plus grande joie de nos yeux, de nos oreilles et de nos narines. Ici ce sont les lavandes placées devant mes ruches extérieur : aucune abeille n'y travaillait. Sans doute avait elle une meilleure source de nourriture à la forêt... Même s'il n'y a pas eu de vraie miellée, il semblent qu'elles aient assez occupées ! Lavender grow, bloom, and only then look really alive, when they are covered with many insects for the great pleasure of our ears, eyes and noze. These are the flowers in front of my hives. No domestic bees on them. I suspect the bees where busy carrying another sort of food from the forest at this time ... Even if I didn't notice a real increase of honey in the Combs, I think they were quite busy last week ! . . . . . #lavandes #flowers #honey #rucher #abeilles #apiculture #hive #beekeeping #beekeeper #apismellifera #imker #imkerei #apisuisse #oldphotos #bee #bpa_macro #pretty_shotz #hive #macro #apiary #apiculture #apicultrice #abeille #ruche #alveole #insects #rucher #savethebees #beehappy #beeyou #macro_perfection

How I keep my seeds.. old DVD case from ages ago. Left space for some more seeds to be added as the months go on. Summer harvest is just beginning and already fall/winter is in the works. Going to be prepping my peas tomorrow for going into the ground! Always lots to do. • • • • #gardenofinstagram #eatyourgreens #vegetables #seeds #seedcollecting #seedcollector #westcoastseeds #hertiageseeds #growyourownfood #savethebees #homestead #pocketfarms #pjsinthegarden #video #horticulture #homestead #healthyfood #growfromseed #wintergarden #wannabefarmer #pocketfarms #fraservalley #fromseed #fraservalley #agassiz #canada #chilliwack #croprotation #fraservalley

I think I felt my heart stop today. I put the Little down in the pool, looked over, and a #bee was desperately trying to keep itself from going under the water right next to her. It was climbing, and climbing, and climbing... I mean, it’s just a bee, and it was clearly exhausted (once I scooped it out it crawled around the lawn for a long time) but I don’t think I want to experience a baby with a bee sting, thanks. It was pretty cool, actually, once I had her out of there and could see what the bee was doing. One bee saved! . . . . . #bumblebee #beerescue #savethebees #bees #kiddiepool #pooltoys #bathtoys #lifewithbaby

Did you know bees sleeping outside the nest will find a nice flower to plop down and stay in? I just learned this recently. I guess I’d never really thought about bees sleeping before. I find a bumblebee napping in a flower to be darling, precious and generally adorable. Anyway, here’s a bee napping on a zinnia in my boyfriend’s garden. 🐝💤😴 #themoreyouknow #buzzbuzz #bumblebee #savethebees #zinnia #naptime #fridayvibes #fridaymood #fridaynight #summertime #flowergarden #bugsarecool #bees

When the bees come to you at the markets...of course, it’s better to bring your cup but this cup is compostable, including the lid, and quite cute at that

Took an amazing workshop at the Honeybee Center in Surrey tonight! It was so much fun! We got a special wax recipe to use for making these amazing beeswax wraps. We had hands on experience turning them into wax covered creations that we can use at home! I will be putting a few of these in my shop when I get a free day to make some more! . . . . . #savethebees #beesarebuds #beeswax #beeswaxcrafts #beeswaxwraps #noplastic #plasticfree #environmental #helptheenvironment #crafts #handmade #dragonrhapsody #starseedcreationsca

Mum was always worried she couldn’t see any bees in her garden. Now every weekend I’ve come back to work on her house, I have seen so many bees 🐝 #savethebees
