“Keeping Bees with Ashley English” Book Review

Ashley English’s series, Homemade Living, are elegantly photographed, informative primers with a “look – you can do it!” attitude.  Having enjoyed others in the series, this was the first bee keeping book I chose to read.  True to form, the photos were lovely, stories personable and entertaining, and text informational.  I only wish there was a bit more photographic detail to enhance the text.  For example, when talking about capped cells or propolis or whatever, I really wanted to see a close up picture.  Perhaps this is because I am a true novice at this point and have not developed that trained eye to distinguish these things?  I think those details would have given me a confidence boost in the pursuit of keeping bees.
