Just this morning, Erin of The Germantown Honeyhound and I opened up our backyard hive. We pried out a few frames and found plenty of honey and new comb as well as lots of capped cells, meaning Queen Elizabeth I is doing her thing, making bee babies. You go, your highness.

Anthropologie Felted Soap: $14
Happy Mother's Day! To pamper the mamas in my life, I recreated a couple of these lovelies from Anthro's December 2009 catalog.

On Derby Eve, The Germantown Honeyhound and I concocted this little beverage to toast our new backyard neighbors. All 10,000 of them.
- Kentucky bourbon whiskey
- orange peel
- honey or orange honey
- apple blossom or any on-hand, edible bloom

So, April was a busy month. We brought home two new Bettys and began our joint beekeeping adventure with the lovely lady of The Germantown Honeyhound. More bittersweetly, I ended the semester with my truly remarkable creative writing students and wrapped up a two-year position with UofL's Axton Reading Series. Missing these already. A lot.
