I have been a beekeeper for three years. I currently have two hives. One from the NC group and another from Bloomfield. I am comparing the two. I had to begin again last spring due to the loss of my bees last winter. I took the classes for newbies 3-4 winters ago and was captivated. They are incredible creatures and I love watching the sun catch their wings as they fly to and fro from the hives. I am also a member of the Rochester group as well as the East TX Beekeepers Association. The TX group is very active getting even the younger crowd interested. They name a bee princess every year and it is quite the commitment for a teenager. I live in Webster NY on a half acre lot. I moved to Rochester from TX many years ago and now have a daughter who has relocated to Wylie TX, works in Plano and has a sweet cabin and 50 acres of the most beautiful plantation pines I have ever seen. I made it a point to become acquainted with the beekeepers there. They have been very welcoming. I plan to spend a month at the cabin in late spring/early summer and plan to attend the bee meetings there. I have actually had two articles published in their newsletter. It was an honor for me to be asked. They are very interested in how different our season is from theirs as they are almost finished harvesting honey when our honey season in Upstate NY is just beginning. Just wanted to post here to get to know more beekeepers up north.
