February Snow on SasserFrass Hill

Hello Everyone,
Here in Augusta we had our first snow of 2010... actually, the first snow in many years on February 12th.
We got about six inches on SasserFrass Hill. It was the most gorgeous snow. Powder, it was light and fluffy with no ice sticking to the roads. It melted the next day but, gave everyone a chance to build snowmen, snow angles and lots of snowball fights all over town. It was just lovely.

We are very excited about the Sacred Hearts Garden Festival coming up April 23rd, 24th and 25th. I will be speaking at two Columbia County Gardens. "Bee Friendly Gardens" is the topic. I will share my photographs and have handout of native shrubs, trees and perennials.
I will sell Honey, Lotion Bars and Lip Balm and I hope to have some pure Beeswax Candles ready to sell also.

Hopefully it will warm up soon and the bees can come out, and welcome a warm spring with lots of flowers full of nectar and pollens.
The girls are getting restless and ready for spring... and frankly, so am I.
Bee Well,
