What do you see?
A tray of boutonnières. Simple right?
I see flowers planned, grown, tended, cared for - for months, rose bushes sometimes for years- to bloom for this singular, special, memory- making moment.

Something beautiful.
Something real.
Something grown with great love for this celebration.
A metaphor.
Symbolism.
Maybe I’m too sentimental, but I’m convinced there is a magic here✨

Is anyone else ready for some local Honey!! It should be ready for extraction in the next few weeks. We will keep you posted.
✨Made by honeybees from the nectar of flowers and flowering plants, each year the honey created is uniquely a product of the blooming flowers, the seasonal temperature and humidity, and the location of the hive.

Spring brings blooms and lots of Beekeeping tasks. Did you know a large portion of bee work takes place at night? This is when they are relocated for a variety of reasons- mating, splits, or pollination in orchards or fields; a good time to move them, especially since they are all nicely tucked in.

We, (Mark T. Durst and Sons) will be presenting at the Washington State Beekeepers Association EWU conference this weekend on Integrated Pest Management (IPM). As many beekeepers know, keeping the bees alive and healthy requires an understanding of bee biology and physiology, as well as a systemic approach to agriculture and the environment. Sustainability matters here, and we have implemented some informed and conscious choices that we can’t wait to share.

We will be presenting on Integrated Pest Management at WSBA- don’t miss it, beekeepers!!https://sites.ewu.edu/Eastern247...

The concentration of the sugar in the plant's nectar was increased by an average of 20% within minutes of sensing the sound waves of nearby bee wings through flower petals. This might be part of the reason many plants' flowers are bowl shaped, to better trap the sounds. https://www.google.com/url?sa=i&source=undefined&cd=&ved=0ahUKEwji0YXK2vzfAhURK30KHZwKAXoQzPwBCAM&url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.sciencealert.com%2Fflowers-may-not-have-ears-but-they-can-still-technically-hear-say-scientists&psig=AOvVaw19Msq9DuwYa4nYMKATy__L&ust=1548085647538898

It’s that time of year again- candle making time. After honey extraction, the beautiful beeswax is cleaned and for a few months in the Fall, we make candles.
Included a pic of this sweet girl- they were flying in the brief warm sunshine we had yesterday. They are getting tucked away warm for the Winter- they will cluster together, slow down, eat their stored honey - ya know, Winter stuff!!
We will have honey, candles, and bouquet subscriptions available on Saturday, November 24th for Small business Saturday. Until then, wishing you a holiday filled with love, friendship, and thankfulness♥️
