My city children took a field trip to the country yesterday.

We went to visit friends who live on Bent Mountain. They collect antique John Deere tractors. I counted 23 in the building we where in. The couple let the everyone drive some of the tractors. Our little bee keeper drove every tractor they brought out. He was in heaven. One comment I overheard was, "It wouldn't be hard on us to move and live in the country."

This couple has helped us tremendously in our bee keeping endeavor. After the tractor driving the boys got to get suited up and look through some of their bee hives. They have 14 hives. They were trying to help show the boys how to see the queen and other things to check for. It was a very enjoyable trip!

Captain Kitty gets her first driving lesson.

The little bee keeper thinks he is a pro.
Sew Long for Now!

Tractors! It looks like fun. I have always thought

I'd like to keep bees. Maybe some day...

you would love bee keeping, and the bees would love your flowers! It's not as hard as you think. They are pretty self-sufficient.
