The bees are still alive! (And weekend work!)

Weekends are always a mix of relaxing, spending time with family and getting things done! So when it’s a beautiful weekend in January, I have to get things accomplished!

First up are those honey bees! Both hives appear to be thriving. They were out, since the temperature was around 50 degrees and they can break cluster to go to the bathroom and get a drink! (And forage too!)

While I was outside I checked on the chickens and the garlic growing in the garden. And all were enjoying the gorgeous day!

I also spent around 30 minutes on Friday giving my Izzy dog a haircut, nail trimming and bath. She needed it! I figure we save around $30 every time that I clip her, and we have had the same clippers since our last dog! They definitely have paid for themselves!

Two of my students bought me plants for Christmas, so I repotted the the Norfolk tree and put the frosty fern in a terrarium to help keep the humidity where the plant likes it.

And I’m letting you in on another plant that I’m trying to regrow: ginger! I bought this chunk for 75 cents at the market (grocery store is what everyone else calls it!) and I’m hoping to get it growing well and have some to harvest in the fall. But, I guess we will see!

I hope everyone have the perfect weekend for you! Have a great week and keep blooming!
