Hello if you're reading this you're about to find out something about me that's a little bit off. Or at least the people who aren't fermi's LOL! I recently purchased some lands 5 acres in West Tennessee with the sole intention of making it a safe home for bees. This is far away enough from everyone that I'll be able to keep quite a few beers I think . As you might have guessed I'm brand new at this and have never kept bees. however these have been following me since I was a little girl I dream about them I find them in the ocean when I'm swimming and I rescue them recently I put a piece of lemon in a tree that I would like them to inhabit the bait was Florida bee pollen. Very soon after that I had a dream that they were visiting the tree my dreams are very vivid. And I have had quite a few with regards to bees I've even gone to other countries and they have followed me inside the home where I was staying the message to me is clear I have to make a safe home for bees. My one of my latest most inspiring events with bees is that I went into my bathroom and they were knocking on the window I went into my kitchen and then they started knocking on the window there. I had a very telling dream after this that I was analyzing some honeycombs with someone standing next to me soon after this dream I realize the purpose of the land was to be to keep a safe home for bees. What a better purpose in life I cannot think of one! so I have purchased some books on beekeeping but having one that is totally natural is totally the bee's knees! LOL I'm a massage therapist by day and I dream of beekeeping by night! So I know it's soon to come cuz I got this land at a pretty good price. I'm very excited to be posting this and welcome your insights I recently met someone on permease and has struck me as a very knowledgeable man and very helpful are his insights.
Looking forward to reading more about my new friends the permease! Signed Martha Hernandez

Hi Martha,

Pleasure to meet you. I just started my second bee colony a few weeks ago and they're going strong. Feel free to reach out with any questions.
