Something I've always wanted to do is to get up close and personal
with honeybees in their hives. Here was my chance!
Kurt welcomed us to visit his hives in lovely Furlong, PA (Bucks County).
His passion was evident as he told us all about his beekeeping hobby!
Here I am in full regalia!
This is the smoker used to calm the bees.
Lifting out one of the frames.
Laura is having as much fun as I am!
Identifying the female workers and the larger male drones.
Hoping to locate the queen, but she managed to elude us.
Drew enjoyed the experience!
Happiness is a hive loaded with honey!
"The fear of the LORD is pure, enduring forever.
The decrees of the LORD are firm, and all of them are righteous.
They are more precious than gold, than much pure gold;
They are sweeter than honey, than honey from the honeycomb."
Crossing that one off of my Bucket List!
