We live on the country side in Sweden and we share with you the life we live. Annuska never has a dull moment and is always full of ideas that Pieter often has to participate in. With gardening, sailing, knitting, weaving, our labrador Milou, work and beekeeping, Annuska is a very busy bee. Pieter cannot sit still either. The garage is his domain. Here he works on all kind of projects, wether or not initiated by Annuska. He is very busy with renovating the boat we have as well. So join us in our adventures. Have fun reading.

Excitement in the Apiary

It was on Saturday morning when I got out to my bees.

When bees swarm it is often the case (they say) that the bees are “gathering” against the front of the hive and then swarm. Well, I must have very strange bees because suddenly there was a lot of activity and they were swarming right under my nose and I did not had a clue!.

Something is up!

The last three days I have been spending with my friend Anna. I have wanted for a couple of years, yes you read that right, to sew myself some wrap dresses. Have had the fabric in the house for ages and now it was happening.

Life

You must be wandering if there is something other then the bees going on in our lives. I have to say it is a bit much lately.  I do not know where to start.

My little friends are building like crazy. 

The moved in exactly two weeks ago and I must say that I thought not much happened. I just a clump with bees being busy. I do peek every day through the window and I have tried to make good pictures and it is not easy!

Black and Green

The last week we have done a lot done.
After the excitement of the Beehive I felt kind of restless, like I had nothing to do with my life (which certainly ain’t true!)

Pieter had started with changing the front garden a bit. That area of the garden was a thorn in his eyes for years.

Our life as beekeepers

With all the building plans you need the right tools.
In a lot of the plans you obviously do not need a lot of tools, but that said, it makes your crafting a lot easier. We found out that the hard way. It is not that it is not neat, we just want it to look a bit better.

BEEHIVE

A couple of weeks ago we had to make a decision of what to do with compost.

In our Township/Municipality we had to make a decision of how we wanted the garbage bin to be handled.
