What a beautiful weekend. The sun shone brightly. It was warm, and we got a heap of things done.
We met up with friends, and then spent time in the garden. Daniel spent Saturday afternoon mowing the lawn and mulching all the trees. I spent the time I did have pulling out weeds from the front garden beds and preparing them for the new strawberry patch I am going to plant this year. The strawberry patch I do have is looking really healthy, but being its third season (they are good for four seasons) I want to have a new bed set up by the end of this season, so I don't go a year without strawberries.
Some photos from last year.
About a month ago now I booked Daniel into a Bee Keeping course. It is usually on Tuesday nights, but today he had the opportunity to spend a day at the teacher's property, learning about the more practical side of bee keeping. I think he is really enjoying it. He came home tonight with so much to tell me, which I take as a good sign. He is hoping to establish at least 2 or 3 beehives in the near future, which would be really exciting. It would be great having our own honey :).
Here is a photo of Daniel in his bee suit. So cute!
Daniel took a little video of a mature bee chewing her way out of her brood cell while out today. It is amazing,
Hope you all had a great weekend too :)
