I worked on cleaning out my pantry the other day- AGAIN!.
I am also weeding out teas that have been in there for more than a year!!!!
So as not to waste any, I have been drinking tea like crazy (plus, I love a cuppa hot tea when it's cold!!)
I am presently working my way through the bags of tea my dear friend Teresa has so kindly shared from her many trips overseas!
I alternate between the French, English, Italian, and Spanish hotel teas, only having to google translate the Italian, to make sure what it is I am drinking!!!
This morning, tho', it is my usual morning tea- Lady Grey, with local honey - or to be totally truthful, I have some tea WITH my honey!!!!!
I am very excited to report- that come spring, I will have bee hives on my property!!!!
A couple of months ago, I met Crystal, who had recently moved here with her family from Kentucky. She sells her honey in some of the local shops. I asked if she ever put her hives in places other than their own property , and she was looking for a place!!! She and her family came out over the weekend- her husband, (the beekeeper), and two lovely children (the kids really came to see Yoshi and Finnegan!)- checked out the site, and agreed the bees will be coming here to live !!!!
The hives will be set up over the winter, the bees will arrive in the spring, and I will get some honey for letting the bees live here and pollinate to their hearts' content!!! It's a win-win!!!!
I can observe, photograph, and blog about the bees, and taste their honey!!! From a distance!!!! LOL
Crystal does sell her delicious honey online, and has a Facebook page - look her up!!!She has jars in all sizes- from wine bottle on down - very reasonable prices and VERY tasty!!!!
Now, I can have my honey and tea too- along with a teacup for every day of the month to drink it in........
