Fabulous Fancy Gap on The Blue Ridge Parkway

Kendall Kessler Art

My Artwork

One of my favorite Blue Ridge Parkway sites, Fancy Gap, has been the inspiration for two of my paintings.  Wildflowers Near Fancy Gap was sold to a great patron in Chicago.  Farm Near Fancy Gap is still available. It is quite an effort to ship a 30″x40″ oil painting on masonite which is a lot heavier than canvas but I have been doing that for around thirty years.

I have never had an accident or return – just compliments.  This patron wanted to frame it herself so I left off the light-weight metal frame I put my large paintings in.  Most patrons want to have the work professionally framed to suit their tastes.

I didn’t have a problem with the packaging but for some reason I must have put in the wrong information on UPS and was given a quote that was much higher than It usually is. …

Summary For 2014 – 139 Animal Mass Death Events In 37 Countries

Thousands Of Bees Found Dead In And Around Hives In Haarlemmermeer, Holland
For a beekeeper near Heemstede-Cruquius spring is dramatically bad start. He found thousands of his bees dead yesterday in and around the hive. They exhibit symptoms of possible contact with pesticides. The House recently debated still using it.

In all dead bees tongue hangs out of the mouth, the legs are cramped and there is pollen on their legs, so told the distraught beekeeper to his colleague Pim Lemmers. He is Holland’s most famous beekeeper with cupboards at the prime minister’s residence and the courtyard and is considered an authority on bee area.

The victim asked him if he had any idea what caused the massive and sudden death of the colony could be. The symptoms did the BI’er (known beekeeper) ring a bell. “They indicate possible damage to spray some pesticide,” explains Haarlem opposite the AD.

Call
By way of appeal to any other beekeepers duped, he posted a picture of dead bees on Twitter. “We are hoping for a response so that we get an idea of ​​the extent of the damage.”

The owner of the dead hive will not talk to the media. He is too excited, says Lemmers. “He imkert nine years and have never experienced anything like it. It is very unpleasant to in droves to see fall to the hive. Bees kill you A bee folk although only costs a few hundred dollars, but the sentimental value is much greater. “

“Horrible to face’
Lemmers speaks from experience. He once lost a part of his hive that was in hives at a fruit grower. “Those growers used purely biological pesticides to protect his fruit trees but a colleague three plots away not. The next day, I found hundreds of dead bees on the fly my shelf. A horrible to face, “he sighs.

The victim beekeeper does today reported the massive bee mortality in NVWA (Dutch Food and Consumer Product Safety Authority). Required by law, Lemmers know. “Thus, the inspectors take samples. If it appears that the bees slachtofer have become poison following an investigation into the guilty. “

Spray Damage
Spraying damage to bees is caused by (incorrect) use of pesticides. Often involves indirect damage resulting after bee pollen and / or nectar have collected on crops sprayed with a poisonous plant protection product for them, teaches an article in the monthly magazine for beekeepers .

Spraying with pesticides toxic to bees should only take place when bees are not flying. These funds may not be used on blooming crops or crops that can be inspired by bees.

Abnormally high mortality
Beekeepers in the Netherlands and the rest of the world have been affected in recent years by an abnormally high mortality . That would be caused by a combination of too little flowers and therefore pollen, pesticides and pathogens that they carry with them. “Does it seem just a little better deal, you get this,” sighs Lemmers.
