Attack of the Ants

Have you noticed that the ants are PARTICULARLY large this spring?? I am scared I am going to get bit up like crazy if I don't watch where I'm stepping and standing for pictures. :)

A Feel Good Story

Major Peña in Afghanistan with GBR honey
That's Major Pena and that's a jar of our honey he's holding. In Afghanistan!!! Thank you for your service to our country, sir, and thank you for sharing your picture with us. The Major just happened to see it in the breakroom at a time when he was feeling homesick. Seeing the label and his hometown listed on the jar made him feel better. We are so honored to be a part of that and we pray he will soon return to his family safe and sound. And we hope we get to meet the Major when he's home!

Renovation Downtown

Mary shows us upstairs above G&G
Last week we were treated to a tour of what's above our all time favorite shop down on the square - what a great space! I wish I had the money to renovate and live and work in that gorgeous space! Thanks for showing us around, Mary!

Signs of Spring

Signs of spring at Big Oaks Bee Yard
One of my favorite signs of spring is baby birds and bird nests. I loved spotting this one while roaming one of our bee yards recently - wonder what kind of bird nested in it in the past and what will be in there soon. Hope I get to see them. Thankful it's low enough for me to get some great shots.
