 After a very trying couple of months I  have two hives and two queens.   I ordered some new frames and foundation  to replace what the bear damaged.  With the new equipment in place the two hives appear to be strong and healthy.  When I am working in my garden I stop to marvel at one of my girls going from flower to flower on a borage plant.


The blue-purple star-shaped flower can be candied and used for cake decorations.  I like to float the flowers in a punch.
The root is used to flavour wine and it can be used to treat fevers, chills and influenza.

This is a lovely herb for the garden and bee yard.


  1. And so pretty. Borage is one of my favourite plants. It's no wonder bees love it so much.
