I was planning to do separate bee updates and posts from other things, but you know, it takes a long time to do one and I am too damn tired to do two. So folks, you will have to BEE PATIENT AND FORGIVING! HAHAHAHA these bee jokes are just going to go on and on, you know that, right?? :)
|Brushing the bees away from the queen cage|
|carefully replacing one of the honeycomb dealies where the queen cage was|
|Our bee tools- hive tool, paint brush, multitool and spray bottle of sugar water|
|Removing one of the parts of the hive to make sure the queen got out of the other cage - you can see the watering pan that has rocks in it for the bees to land on to get water|
|Crazy isn't it|
|And of course we had the cork issue here too.|
|The bees had started to make comb on the queen box!|
So today I went for a little photo shoot of some flowers both planted and wild and got a few nice shots. It gives me so much pleasure to have these flowers around and I am assuming that pretty soon the bees will start visiting these different blossoms as well. They were pretty busy in the hive today, haven't seen anyone out and about quite yet, but I bet that will come soon.
Anyway, here is a selection of some of my finest daffodils and there are a few mayflowers and blood roots too.
