    I know there are a few members from the UK here on beBee, but is anyone living in Hampshire?
    Today I booked a Southampton venue for my first Social Media Masterclass and I would love to invite beBee members 😊

    WORLD HONEY BEE DAY IS AUGUST 19, 2017
    I've created a Hive and I invite everyone to share posts, research, articles, on the HONEY BEE! The Actual Honey Bee! whose populations are in danger. A great start is to share suggestions for protecting our Honey Bee populations such as native plants to plant in your region of the world.

    World Honey Bee Day This hive is to share information on Actual Honey Bees. Colony Collapse Disorder is the sudden death of a colony of Honey Bees. It is a global epidemic and there are many proposed causes. We invite all of the beBee Bees to research and contribute

    I like it, and the bees like it too, Spider Lily. (Excuse me if that sounded too full of myself).

    Me gusta, y las abejas también, Spider Lily. (Disculpe si eso sonaba demasiado lleno de mí mismo).

    Eu gosto, e as abelhas também gostam, Spider Lily. (Desculpe se isso soou muito cheio de mim mesmo).

    I Come to the Garden Alone...
    My latest photo on www.flickr.com/photos/kwpashuk

    Leaving the house this morning I couldn't help but notice how the roses were still in bloom, even in mid-November.

    I was then reminded of that old hymn... I come to the garden alone, while the dew is still on the roses.

    Hvar, Croatia, is known as the island of sun but also the island of lavender. Lavender fields are different than fields of Provence with its regimented rows. Massive tufts of lavender grow up to 1.5 meters in height in apparently random fields between stone walls and massive piles of cleared limestone.
    Three major fires in the last two decades have been almost completely destroyed the Hvar lavender plantations. Thanks to the persistent growers, Hvar still exudes the scent of lavender.
