Successful Open House

I would like to thank ALL who came out to the Lavender Farm this past Saturday! We had such a blast meeting everyone & feel so blessed to know that our neighbors support usĀ as a local business! I believe everyone enjoyed the Faires Musicians, Lavender Ice Cream, the Spinners Guild, cutting Lavender Bouquets, not to mention my Bee Tours!

If you missed the Open House, you will need to come out to the next one in 2016! We’ll have the Spinners & Faires Musicians again! We will definitely have more for you and your family next year!

Food for Thought!

“If the bee disappeared off the surface of the globe, then man would have only four years of life left. No more bees, no more pollination, no more plants, no more animals, no more man.” – Albert Einstein

Bee Photography

So I tried my hand at bee photography this afternoon. I will tell you that it was more difficult than I thought! These little ladies are constantly on the move, that the moment the camera can focus she flies off! However, I was able to get a few good shots of them in action! What do you think?

Pictures were taken with Nikon D3300 on the auto setting since I am still working with the camera to learn how to work the manual options. Not to mention that I am in dire need of a ‘up close and personal’ lens! But one step at a time here, I mean I am trying to pay for a trip to Machu Picchu! But we are going to have one killer camera for that trip!
