A bit late on this one but for my birthday the love of my life and I went and got tattoos for each other (Swipe for video) 🖤 Thistles are our wedding flowers and honey bees because he’s my honey 🍯 Thanks again Yoshi @northtampa_atomictattoos for killing it once again. The line work and pointillism is sick!! • • • • • • • • • • #newink#atomic#tattoos#forearmtattoo#floraltattoo#thistles#honeybees#beetattoo
We solve bee problems often with just education. These tree was full of bees and residents were worried. Upon inspection we saw that the bees were farming rust fungus. Yep its that dry in Santa Barbara.
Solis invictus. The unconquerable sun. . As it gets darker longer I find myself hanging on to every sliver of sunlight. . Last night I read about Solis invictus, how the sunlight weakens and shortens all the way to the 21st of December. Almost dying completely. This is followed by the 3 darkest days of the year, and then, on December 25th, the sun moves ahead 1 degree. Reborn. Historically the sun was encouraged to return by everybody lighting every candle they could, coaxing the return of the light! . This morning I wanted to make something that reminded me of sun and warmth, so here are some Ginger Honey caked with a warm Orange Honey glaze. . #honeycake#solisinvictus#sunlightandwarmth#traditions#christmasseason#gingerandspice#bees#honigkuchen#warmth#wintersolstice#honeybees
Bzzz! Did you know bees have been producing honey from flowering plants for over 10 million years?! Talk about a sweet commitment! 😉 So, want to know how to make it another 10? Plant for them.👌🐝🌻 #bkn#plantforpollinators#savethebees⠀ 📷: @thekosmickitchen
Marrying hives together is not so easy! You have to keep them separate with a piece of newspaper. The new bees on top could kill the queen if we don't give them time to accept her. So I will slowly add frames to the top box. Within a few days the bees will eat through the newspaper and join the girls in the bottom. By that time they will accept the pheromones of their new Queen...and not kill her!!!! Mind blowing.... I'll be back in a few days to see if they have eaten through the newspaper. #savethebees#pollinators#savethehoneybees#myhoneysbees#bees#honeybees#honeybee
