Spring is almost here!

One of God's most amazing and wonderous Creations!

Apple blossoms waiting to be pollinated in an Apple Grower's orchard.

New colonies of honeybees ready to begin their day's work; gathering nectar and pollen to sustain the colony through the coming winter.

Honeybee on cherry blossoms. Pollination.

In the peak of the season, when the Queen is at peak egg laying capacity honeybee colonies become congested and the bees swarm! Thousands upon thousands of young worker honeybees come rushing out of the hive and fill the air with the sound of their tiny transparent wings.

I have witnessed this phenomenon on several occasions while visiting my beehives.

Truly amazing!

This beekeeper is capturing a swarm of honeybees. He is putting them in a nucleus hive, a "nucleus" meaning it is a 'starter' colony or partial hive. Watch as the bees move toward the entrance of the hive as they appear "marching."

Pretty neat, huh?

The finished product. Pure, Rich, Golden honey.

Psalm 19:9-10 'The fear of the Lord is clean, enduring forever; The judgments of the Lord are true and righteous altogether. More to be desired are they than gold, Yea, than much fine gold; Sweeter also than honey and the honeycomb.'

God bless!
