Summerfest Weekend

The sun was shining brightly upon our display which made our beeswax candles smell even more mildly fragrant, drawing in visitors.

Last weekend was the 1st Annual Mudd Lake Organic Summerfest. We were excited about this event because it is extremely local to us and only about 2 miles away from our candle workshop! This gave us a chance to get to know some of our neighbors and meet some new customers and friends. We made some wonderful contacts and had a great time despite the complete rain out on Saturday.

We are looking forward to attending again next year.

You can now find our Scent from Nature; 100% Pure Beeswax Candles at Amelia Flower and Garden Shoppe . Amelia's is a beautiful flower shoppe located on 36th Street West in south Minneapolis, MN. Ask them about their gorgeous candle pots made out of beeswax with pressed flowers on the outside! Our votives work wonderfully in those wax pots.

Mudd Lake Organic Summerfest!

We're excited to be participating in the 1st Annual Mudd Lake Organic Summerfest! Come and check it out! Look for us near the food and wine shelter.

Hope to see you there!

Busy Honey Bees

I caught this honey bee gathering nectar and pollen from our apple blossoms.

One of the many red winged black birds that resides on our Oake Lake paradise.

Look closely and you'll see the pollen sacks on the honey bee's leg. They pack the pollen into these sacks with their legs and when they fly into their hive there is a little brush that flicks the pollen out of the sack and into a tray below the hive. Pollen is super vitamin and has the highest protein content of any food. Now that's amazing!

Caught in flight

On the approach...

Honey bees are amazing creatures!

'Tis the season when honey bees begin gathering the nectar they will then turn into honey and the very precious beeswax used in our Scent from Nature: 100% Pure Beeswax Candles!

The apple trees in our orchard are blooming much earlier than I can remember. Since winter ended the beginning of March this year, it is only natural that everything else would be early.

I was able to catch on disk, some of our special worker bees in action as they pollinate and gather nectar from our apples trees. How exciting it is to watch them go from blossom to blossom!
