This past Tuesday, we received a very special package in the mail! A new mated Queen bee! She arrived by US postal service overnight delivery! Check out the packaging! Love it!
newest hive about 3 weeks ago. It happens from
time to time. Either the hive was unhappy with her and they gave her the
boot. Or we may have accidentally sqooshed her during a hive
inspection. Or she may have been eaten by a bird or died of natural

I was on my way to work today, as I emerged from the Subway at the Bowling Green stop in Battery Park, I saw this man selling orchids at the park and literally stopped in my tracks. Did that sign really say $10????? I had to take a closer look. I love orchids. I mean L O V E. I've bought them several times in the past. But I have so little luck with growing them. The first two orchids that I ever purchased, I killed from overwatering. Orchids don't like too much water. They will suffer from root rot. And I pretty much killed them from overwatering. Then at the beginning of this year, I bought another orchid. Luckily, I learned my lesson with overwatering, and this orchid plant is still alive and thriving. It has yet to rebloom though. Do you grow orchids? How do you get it to bloom again? What's your best advice?
