Bits and pieces of the weekend, in pictures:

But first, a thank you to the computer that makes blogging, art, music, etc. all happen.

Another prayer flag (near the fountain and roses).  There are 5 in all, I think – 3 of them have honeybees on them.  I tried to put one up on the fence near Terpsichore, but several drones gave me warning buzzes, so I honored them from a distance.  They are very, very busy up there.

A prayer flag for a special herb garden – if you look closely, it says ‘Go on, be a devil.’

Wow, was suddenly greatly inspired by looking at Bee Creative.  Look at these Prayer Flags.

Her site is beautiful.  Have a look.

Basil (several kinds), favas, sunflowers, sweet peas, lots and lots of weeds cleared -land reclaimed for planting.

At the top left of this picture are raspberry vines, uncovered from the weeds.  Sunflowers are above them.

A particularly successful loaf of bread, baked Sunday afternoon.

I swept pathways, painted seed row markers for the garden and got housework done.  By the end of the weekend, I felt good and grounded.

Priming and painting the hive.  We named the hive, rather than the queen, Terpsichore, after the Muse of Dance and Stringed Instruments. I’m designing a stencil design of a lyre – this will be stamped in gold around the bottom edge of the hive.

Here is Terpsichore, nearly finished and ready to be mounted up the hill.  Further descriptions, stories and more coming soon, I promise.  It’s been a very busy week and I wanted to make sure these pictures were posted.
