I've been so busy this summer, that time is going by faster than I can keep up with blog posts. So I am attempting to catch up on a month's worth of beekeeping in this one post.

I've been so extremely busy with life lately that I have very little time to enjoy the garden this year. I was walking around the property and saw that the hybrid lilies that I planted a few years back have come back! I picked a few to enjoy in the house. Lilies are by far one of the easiest things to grow. You just plant the bulbs and year after year, you have this to enjoy! As a lazy gardener, this is definitely my kind of gardening!
Then within two days and this unbearable heat wave we're in, they all have started to bust open. They sure are stunning, and the scent is wonderful! I just love walking in the room and seeing these blooms. Instantly puts a smile on my face!

We were extremely lucky to have two hosts this year for our beehives. The hives are located a mere 5 blocks from each other in Fort Greene / Clinton Hill, Brooklyn which makes it easy for us to inspect them. Although close in distance, the two hive locations could not be any different. One of the hives is in a lush backyard filled with greenery and flowers.
