Hey everyone, I have already posted in the newbee thread, but I figured I'd post one here too.
About me and bees...I have always wanted to keep bees. Since a kid, I have preferred honey to everything else sweet. I just never had an opportunity. My hubby and I just closed on a house in the historic district of town, and there are bees in a wall of a room that will be undergoing some light demo. We are planning on keeping the colony, and moving them to a hive in the yard. I am joining the Beekeepers Association of SWFL this week. So this is how I am getting into beekeeping... Hubby's aunt is a beekeeper, so I have a great resource to call any time I need some advice. Her bees are in Wisconsin, but she visits us for a few months in the winter every year. She is very excited about all this.
Other than that, I am a graphic and web designer, we have quite a few pets and a love of historic homes.
