The Garden Bee Bed & Breakfast is Closed

TGBBB Logo

I would like to announce that after 4 great seasons The Garden Bee Bed & Breakfast has closed it’s doors. To all those supporters and guests over the years I say, “Thank You!”. Our lives have been enriched by all and deeply touched by a few.

The Garden Bee Beeswax Candles will continue to grow and prosper as it is in its 14th year and continues to be a recognized Nova Scotian brand.
Who knows what is next for The Garden Bee.
Stay tuned!

What’s in Bloom Now? The Bottle Tree of Course!

The bottle tree (aka Stella cherry) is just beginning to bloom. The bottles are used for weights to bend the branches down for easy picking. Underneath spring bulbs bloom delighting the eye with colour and form. Hyacinths, daffodils, silia, tulips….which is your favourite spring bulb?

Enjoy the sights and sounds of a beautiful spring morning alive with life in our front yard.

Our Neighbour the Pileated Woodpecker

The laughing, raucous call of the Pileated Woodpecker greeted me this morning as I stepped outside to the garden. Everything about this beautiful bird seems overstated…size, colour, calls.

Did you know, a Pileated Woodpecker’s wing span can reach 66 to 75 cm (26 to 30 in)?

We feel blessed to have had a pair nesting near us for many years.  –   Rosemary
