I first learned about beekeeping (or apiculture)when I worked at the Ortho Research Library. We did a hallway display about hives and tools and other things related to an apiary and their care. I may one day start my own hive, but right now I am just enjoying reading various articles and visiting stores and websites.
Here is a quick glimpse of the products that I have designed for my store on Zazzle.
