HONEY IT "BEE" ~ Black and White Wednesday

Oh! I didn't tell you!

The BEES arrived!

last Saturday

They didn't have to fly in either...

Rick and the boys drove them in...

 Ruffo was very interested in what was in the box...UNTIL! she found out the hard way. THEY! hurt.

Matthew, Stephen and Rick spent the day last Saturday putting bees into new homes...


 We are so excited!

Our Little Boys have a "HONEY" of a new Hobby.

the long road


  1. I love this post!

  2. Oh, you are one amazing family!!!! And very, very brave!!! Poor Ruffo!!! :-( Love you!!! Janine XO

  3. Wow you are all brave bees freak me out!

  4. oh that freaks me out! I strongly dislike bees and everything that stinks, lol. More power to ya!

  5. **by stinks I meant stings...yeah...

  6. Oh MAN you are brave! Your LITTLE Boys...couldn't they have taken up something a little more BASKET WEAVING??

    Love the idea of fresh honey...don't love the idea of those babies swirlin' around!


    (Great shots by the way!)

  7. Fresh home-made honey! Love the idea....the bees?....well.

    Actually, when I planted my roses years ago I made a deal with my bees and we get along pretty good. Now, the wasps are another story.

    Great story in pictures.

  8. Wow...amazing. I think I would be slightly afraid! Great captures!

  9. Wow so much fun!! Yall are really brave having bees around but the outcome is going to be so tasty!!!

    Thank you for stopping by my blog and leaving a comment I appreciate it!!

  10. These comments are CRACKING ME UP!!! Everyone half-freaked out about the bees! LOL!
    Yes...bee stings hurt. And yes...some are highly allergic (for me, it's the yellow jackets and wasps). HOWEVER, bees aren't aggressive like their cousins the wasp and yellow jacket. That is unless we're talking African bees! Anyhow, the life of bees (no pun on the book or movie here!) is AMAZING! And NOTHING, i mean NOTHING beats fresh honey!

    You already know I think this "science experiment"/hobby/life lesson you've encouraged the boys to do is remarkable! Way to go Lisa!! Whoo Hooo!

    P.S. GREAT pics!

    BTW, LOVE the "Stupid Rick" label at the bottom of the post! LMBO!

  11. Nice post you have here. I love the title. it is cracking me up :)

    I think it is cool you are encouraging your sons to have bees.

  12. This is great! My husband has been interested in bees for some time. Keep us updated! I really like the way you left some of the bees colored, cool effect!

  13. Cool! I love the first photo with the bees all honey colored!

    No bee suits for Ruffo, eh? Our childhood dog loved to eat bees and she found a way to do it with just her front teeth with her lips careful not to touch the bee. It was hysterically funny to watch. Too bad there wasn't any easy video back then!

  14. Oh my goodness. These pictures were so awesome. So perfect for black and white. I love them!

  15. Wow, how cool!!! What a fun project for your boys!!

  16. Great hobby and photos! Hope you enjoy your first harvest of honey.

  17. Lisa...I love your pics, especially the blury backgrounds.

    I only recently got a 'big girl' camera and this thing boggles my mind, never mind the editing programes!!!

    My youngest would love having bee's, anything animal, spider, insect or bug has been through our house, and I find dead insects in jars all around the house!
    He was born to live on a farm!

    You are very brave...I would be way to scared to be stung!

  18. Wow...
    I'm afraid of bees..but i've always admired bee keepers.
    Now is it a lot of work ?

  19. Sounds like an interesting hobby to me. We once had a swarm of bees visit...they took up residence in a hollow tree for awhile!

  20. This is SO COOL!!! Beautiful black and whites!!

    Good luck:)


Thank you for taking the time to read and comment. I will do my best to visit you back!

Have a great day!
