Busy Bee

Bianca and I love the book "Secret Life of Bees" by Sue Monk Kidd.  It is such a wonderful novel about mother and daughter and the transcendent power of love.  We thought it would be nice to work in a bee farm and "send our love to the bees.."  (If you read the book, you know what I mean.) happened yesterday!  The family went to Ilog Maria and finally got to see up close a real honeybee farm!  There were rows and rows of bee hives, and in the workshop we saw raw propolis and beeswax!

On the way to the farm, Bianca snapped some photos of wildflowers. 
She has a knack for flowers and her photos always turn out beautiful! 
I love this cosmos flower with the bee!

Look at these purple flowers, they look like they're glowing!

One more stop for Bianca's coffee cherries!  She said it's like the cover of her Starbucks planner.

What did you do last Sunday?  Have a happy week ahead!
