Potting Shed Back Door + Bee in My Bonnet

Happy Monday!

I’ve had a ‘bee in my bonnet’ about a back door ‘Welcome’ for the Potting Shed.

 The Potting Shed is oriented with the back door to the driveway and road

and is more visible than the front door, which faces a wooded area by the lake.

I love all things *bee* so this Apiary Apron with bee skep ‘spoke’ to me. . .

Good for buzzing around in the kitchen or in the garden. . .

when it’s not 90+ degrees in the shade! 🐝

Bees are buzzing on a pillow. . .

And by the Limelight Hydrangeas. . .

Bumblebees hug the flowers, crawling inside and enjoying

the protective cover and shade of the big blooms.

My bonnet is sharing some bee-attitudes. . .

The hat is buzzing with bees, temporarily alight with magnets.

I found Primitives by Kathy Bee Magnets to join my other Bee Magnets.

You can see the magnets buzzing around the

flowers and table from last week, HERE.

Plain magnets are on the under side of the brim, holding the decorative magnets

in place as a temporary decoration without damaging the hat! 🐝

    I love this Mary! Your limelight hydrangeas are so big and bee-uitful! I admire your stamina to get out and garden (and photograph!) in this summer heat. The humidity has been off the charts. Thanks so much for the links too, I think I need a cute bee apron and dish towel. 🐝 Jerrie

    Your apron, the bonnet and your new doormat are all so perfect for my favorite potting shed, Mary!! Every time I see your limelight hydrangeas, I want some. I must’ve missed your bee-themed table…I’m off to see it. Happy week to you.xo

    Bee-utiful! I am a lover of bees, both the one’s found in nature and the one’s that adorn numerous spaces in my home. World Bee Day is annually celebrated on May 20th since 2017 when the United Nations General Assembly adopted a resolution declaring the day. That was after 3 years of effort by the Slovenian Beekeeper’s Association president, Bostjan Noc, with the support of other Slovenian beekeeper’s and their government department. To honor their pioneer of apiculture Anton Jansa, who was one of the greatest experts of his time, they chose his 1734 date of birth for the celebration. Though that has passed, there is still National Honey Bee Day celebrated annually the third Saturday of August…this coming Saturday, August 15th. This one began in 2009 when it was held on the 4th Saturday, but has since that year become the third. You are well prepared to celebrate the day ! I see many bee themed items here that I “need”! Thank-you!

    Your hydrangeas are lovely, certainly your bees agree❤️. I also enjoy watching the bees and hummingbirds around the flowers🌺. Great post, as usual!! So many gift ideas for our bee lovers💕

    Mary, all the bees buzzing around the potting shed are bee-utiful! The apron and straw hat make a fabulous door adornment, so cute! Your gardens are so lush and healthy, mine is looking a bit ragged and tired. Thanks for all the eye candy. Have a wonderful week!

      What a cute decoration for the back door! Looks great! Too cute Mary. Also, really like your new door mat. So happy for you. ♥️🐝♥️🐝

    Bee lovers inspiration is definitely here! My sister is a “bee lady” and you have given me great ideas for her birthday.
    The Limelight Hydrangeas are magnificent. I found a very large limelight shrub at a garden center last weekend, but passed on it as I had the wrong vehicle! Since you love bees, have you considered having a bee hive in your garden? Love the “apron lady” on the door!

    Love your potting shed with the beautiful red door, it has inspired me to change the color of my used brick octagon house.door. Think it
    would be the perfect color. Would you possibly remember what color it is and the company that makes it.?
    Thanks so much

      Hi Char, I repainted it last year with paint leftover from my DIY Board and Batten Shutters. It’s Spanish Tile / Valspar Reserve Extreme Weather Paint + Primer.

  27. August 19, 2020 at 7:15 pm

    Thanks so much, can’t wait to see how great my house will look..
