The Bees of August 2011

Post: Bernie: August 17, 2011
Note: To follow our Bee Keeping adventure from beginning to end, choose Setting up the hive from the index at right.

t is mid-August and the Tall Daisies around the terrace are about six feet tall. Every morning we will most likely be found sitting out there at the table having our coffee, tea and toast. We watch the birds coming to get the seed we put out and the Chipmuncks stealing it (unless Misha sees them and chases them off).

We do this all under a blanket of soft buzzing.

Up high among the Tall Daisies (I like to think they are our Bees.). Bees are busy. Buzzily taking what they need back to the hive to make enough honey to get them through the winter (and maybe some to share with the Beekeeper and us too).

Hundreds of Bees keeping to themselves high up there in the Tall Daisies.
