  • Hung out in a favorite tree today with my favorite little guy.
  • I'm sure gonna miss this view when the leaves are all gone! Forecast calls for snow tomorrow evening, on Halloween night. What the what?!
  • For today's #tbt, I'm sharing an image of the altar @shelterprotectsyou and @sheltercollective built on our property for their wedding here last month. Such a beautiful, memorable day that was, filling our little forested cove with happy juju for weeks. Love watching the scene shift as the foliage changes.
  • Felt a shift in the air today, this afternoon in particular. The veil is getting thin. You feeling it, too?
  • SO much love for @forvillagers and her heavenly homesteading/hearth-tending supply store in West Asheville. Stopped in today for a bag of organic chicken feed and to see what's new in the shop. I'll be teaching a
  • The hills are alive. Looking Glass Rock in the distance, as seen today from the #blueridgeparkway .
  • My favorite part of all of these photo shoots for my upcoming  picnic book has been eating the props! Enjoyed this pumpkin whoopie pie today on an impromptu picnic with @glennbenglish and Huxley on the #blueridgeparkway.

  • Nothing could be finer than to be in Carolina at suuuuunset. ?
  • They won't fess up for certain, but I'm fairly sure the flock finds autumn to be their favorite season, too.
  • To celebrate all the photo shoots that we completed this week (three in 8 days!!!), we took it easy this morning, and whipped up this challah French toast, stacked with my homemade peach lavender butter, Foothills bacon, rosemary candied pecan pieces, and sorghum molasses blended with maple syrup.

Catch the Buzz

For you local folks looking for something to do tonight, I invite you to come check out a panel discussion on “Women & Bees” that I’ll be included in.


Part of Asheville International Pollinator Week, the discussion follows Tammy Horn’s talk on how the honeybee has been perceived in this country and how those perceptions have changed as the country has developed through the centuries. She’ll also be discussing her upcoming book on women and bees. Horn is a professor at Berea College in Kentucky and the author of Bees In America-How the Honeybee Shaped A Nation and Beecomony: What Women and Bees Can Teach Us About Local Trade and the Global Market.

The event will be held at Altamont Theatre Company located at 11 Church St. It runs from 7-9 and costs $11. Here’s a link to the event. Hope to perhaps see some of you there!

    Oh how I wish that I didn't live on the OTHER side of the state! I am a female beekeeper– of color, noless- and I would love to meet other female beekeepers. I hope that the talk was informative. I look forward to reading Ms. Horn's work. It sounds interesting.
