Candles






The littles and I decided to make some bee wax candles for the up and coming Candlemas/Imbolc holiday. We really love making bees wax candles, so easy to do even wee little Fiona can do it too. I pulled out the silver platter that we use to hold a bunch of candle during Christmas time and added a vase of flowers (in the photo it is tulips, but now there are freesias (one of my favorite flowers). Here in Arizona it is just full steam ahead into spring. We have so many plans for this weekend, starting seeds, moving the garden boxes, visiting the urban garden center to buy worms and check out the bare root grape vines (the boys really want to plant grapes), and maybe some other goodies. Now if only our health will co-operate, this illness we have is just dragging us down.

I have always wanted to make beeswax candles, but I never have! I think we may have to change that soon.
