This will be grandbabee #11....if my oldest had kept the things I made her girls we could just share. We have had a long run of boys with 4 in a row, this one is a girl and her momma wants cute frilly things made by grandma for her keepsake box. I always make each grandchild a baby quilt, and now have to work on larger ones...the grands have requested "big enough to roll up in and watch tv" quilts now. When I was little my grandma made us kids each a "traveling quilt" that had a sewn in pillow pocket, and had pockets in it where we could tuck a book and a flashlight that I'm thinking of trying to recreate if I ever find time to sit and sew again.

Jealous. We still have 2-3 months before they even think about cleansing flights!

Babies are inspiring. I usually get inspired for quilts these days, they grow too fast for anything they would wear

Texas doesn't seem to have anything so far, but I cross posted the New York one to Metro Beekeepers in DFW.  Will see if any new links pop up there due to the inspiration

I haven't put on 1:1 yet, mine are hitting my broccoli that I let go to bloom, and dandelions in the neighborhood today.
going to make some spacers and put some harvest honey comb on top of each hive, on the frames, for them to eat. It didn't sell, grandkids don't want it, let the bees have it with no robbing. We have rainy weather coming  next week, and they aren't hitting my pollen sub yet

Honey, Bee Forage; Nectar & Pollen Sources / Re: What blooms where and when

 I gave my bees 1-1 on Tuesday, they took very little of it, the red maple is in full bloom, the red cedar is covered with pollen buds. It has begun here.

Oh boy!  :bee:  Can you post this in the topic Honey, Bee Forage; Nectar & Pollen Sources?  Place this under What Blooms When & Where?  It will be fun to read the posts and watch the blooms move north.  Our Silver Maples (1st to bloom here, then red maples) have buds that are swelling, but we are about a month away.
