Yesterday was Earth Day and this guy celebrated with a little beekeeping!
He picked up a new hive Friday and got TWO calls about swarms over the weekend. The first swarm was already gone when he got there, but he was able to catch the second one.
I bet the poor lady who called was happy too and the bees seem content in their new digs!
Our backyard is kind of a wild kingdom right now…a huge vegetable garden, a dog, some bees, birds, squirrels and an owl. He showed up one afternoon and perched up in the pin oak.
Earth without art is just “Eh”, so I had to make a card too!
I printed the image on watercolor paper and got busy watercoloring the images with Faber Castell gelatos, TomBow Dual Brush pens, shading with Faber Castell Big Brush Markers and some Diamond Stickles for sparkle.
I trimmed some of the flowers with a craft knife and popped them up with some foam tape for a little added dimension. I opted to skip a sentiment, the colored images were too cute to cover up!
