Spring #TBT 4/29/15

Ah, Spring!  The warm sunny days of spring are so wonderful!

Here my Man took a picture of me gathering our first "crop" Violets for  Violet jelly!

We noticed an abundance of honeybees on our pear tree.  Having "lost" our bees last year, we moved the hive under the tree hoping that a scout bee would see it and bring his swarm over.  I even slathered it up with essential oil:Lemon Grass (101 list) because it says on the internet that Lemon Grass is one on the favorite scents of honey bees.

We ended up not catching any :(

But that violet jelly was sure good.
