Clover

We’ve had a week of wet weather and everywhere you look it’s green. The yard is a mass of clover which means that the local honeybees are hard at work making clover honey. I can’t wait! We ran out of local honey last year and had to buy some of the grocery-store stuff. We just got a jar of the early-season wildflower honey, but the clover honey is the best.

The Very Best Smoky Mountain Honey!

I’ll be camping on Smoky’s doorstep.

      Try a farmers’ market. Also, being in Europe, you might be able to get thyme honey. We can buy it here, but it’s very expensive.

      Rosco! You go to a bee festival and don’t post any photos of it??!! I had to go to their website. They had actual bees at it!

      You’re doing the “weed” thing wrong. You are the one who decides what is a “weed” and what is a desirable plant. For example, because I have an iguana, dandelions and plantains have moved from the “weed” category to the “iguana food” category. This reduced the weed content of our lawn substantially. It’s like Shakespeare wrote: A rose by any other name would be a weed. Or something like that.
