I Still Like Valentine's Day

2.05.2014



Did I tell you I am getting bees this year?

If you like this illustration and haven't figured out what you are going to give your sweetheart for Valentine's day, you might like my "Valentine Card Service" where I personalize and mail this card, in a tricked-out glittery wonderful way, to your valentine. And if you're into economy and vintage I've got a free download of the good stuff here.

    1. no just setting up safe harbor for pollinators in exchange for flowers and food. If Winter ever ends. Make it stop, Cat.

  3. Hello sweet girl, I really like your card design and how exciting to be getting bees.
    If only I had a love in my life a special man to send a card to, sadly I have no-one. :(
    I keep reminding myself of a quote you once sent me, "It takes a good man to replace no man at all". I haven't found one yet.
    Love and hugs
    xoxoxo ♡

    1. Thank you, Diane - Im excited, maybe a little apprehensive, about my first hive. Im 'in line' for my hive not sure I will get it - I will soon find out. I wish there was some wisdom or comfort to offer you in your search for someone to love and to be loved back - i would say that you are never really alone in nature but that's an easy platitude. At the very least, your search seems to be the fuel that fires your poetry and perhaps for now that is your love affair. xo

  4. Good morning Ckickory,

    Since LX beat me to it, I wont make a bee pun. You'll enjoy having Bees. They are a lot of fun to watch.

    A couple of suggestions: read as much as you can about them, watch out for crack pots, and consider a Nuc. Local Bees from a healthy hive, may give you a better start. Avoid feeding with sugar water and don't be in a hurry for honey. Best of luck with it.

    1. thank you, Karl! much appreciated. I was going to take a class at the college on beekeeping. Honey - not in a hurry for it Im about giving safe harbor and getting some pollinator work in. Ive got a lot of clover and my woods are FULL of sourwood. I dont think I will need sugar water. I will update you when spring gets closer - not too soon for my taste I am totally over winter now.

  7. My ex Father-in-law was a beekeeper.
    He had a small hive, but he LOVED doing it!
    I enjoyed seeing his set up, and of course, the fabulous orange blossom honey.
    Good luck with your bees!

    Bee Charmer ....

  10. Happy Valentine's Chicky.

    I got this card for The Mrs. yesterday, but the mail was so late because of the snow storm that it stayed out in the mailbox all night. I started to get worried that it wasn't coming. Then, I saw it bright and early this morning when I went out to shovel snow - again. The Mrs. was baffled by it until she saw it was from me...via you. She liked it. Thanks.
