Look what popped up...and just in time for winter! Well, it feels like it outside!! We are on vacation this week and there is a chance of rain every day. They say it is 53degrees outside but it feels like 30! Doesn't matter I guess, we are working on the house this week. On Friday we insulated the Grand Banquet Hall!
After a few hours of that itchy job, I decided to get outside.
I cleaned up the leftover mess that my loving family left for me.
What do you think? Wear? Don't wear?
Then I took a break on the porch. I'm putting the border on this blankey now!
Then my Shug and I did more yard staking for a pole barn. We have been trying to find an area to put a pole barn that is ok with both of us, and doesn't take up too much green space. This was the last location and I thought it was going to be perfect, until I saw how far back it would go. I think we have the perfect location now. We've changed our minds...let's see.....1...2...3...4...who knows how many times!
Then I started on this sad and arduous task. I think I told you I lost all but two hives. Well, it appears there is only one alive now. I have been taking them down and cleaning them out. I have no where to put them, so I'm setting them back up. I did find a place that has bees for sell. And I checked with someone I know to make sure the place was legit.
Here is my one live hive, and it is not a strong one.
Can you find the queen in these pics?
Hint..the queen is only in one of the pictures and she looks much different than the rest of the bees.
