In Sweet Delight...



This is the result of hard working bees...
taught of God to give us a sweet gift


we harvested 21 pounds of raw honey from one hive...
and found it a beautiful pale, golden color...
a contrast to the dark amber of our last harvest

with all the blossoming trees on Pilgrim's Farm...
the bees have kept close to home...
busying themselves high in the cassia trees with yellow flowers...
just yards away from the hives


giving this honey a delicate, flowery taste

I love how the sunlight shines through the honey


May your day, or night be sweet as honey in God's grace.

  1. 21 pounds of honey! that seems like a lot. Honey I think is the perfect food. Needs no refrigeration, never goes bad.There's more reasons that I can't think of.
    I've heard, and I beleive, that if a person has allergies the local honey will help because it is made from the very things that cause the allergy. Good for the immune system.

  4. That is the prettiest jar of honey that I have ever seen. The honey that comes from this area and surrounding areas is a dark amber color. It is sold in fresh markets and stores. Not only is your golden honey delicious looking , the way you presented it is beautiful. That jar is very pretty and the greenery is a creative idea. Wish I lived next door so you might invite me for breakfast and serve this wonderful gift from your bees. Have a great week on Pilgram's Farm!-----

  6. I have never seen such a light clear honey before. Your description is so lovely. We had a lot of visiting bees in our basil flowers one year and I wondered how that herb affected the flavor of the honey they made. What type of yellow flowers are those?
    God blessed you with a very large harvest. Where we live the city sprays for mosquitos and our bee population is very minimal. It is a worrisome trend, but we have to trust God as well.

  7. Karen Deborah, I've been trying to find out what kind of tree bears those yellow flowers. I'll update the honey post if I find out.

  8. Your honey is beautiful and the jar is so cute also! The touch of vine.......makes it so pretty. That would be so nice to have on your kitchen window seal!

    Tonight I came home and one of the big roosters was dragging my little white bantam cochin rooster around........not a happy Farm Mom! Ran after the big rooster and rescued the cochin. Doctored him up and have him in a safe pen.

    Blessings sweet friend, Linda

  9. Oh I enjoyed the Honey Post! We have bees too, and it is a delight to see God in it!
    Just the thought of how the Lord had to create one for the other (flower for Bee.....Bee for flower)
    where does evolution fit in that??
    Praise god!

    Hugs Love and Blessings,Linnie
