It has been over two weeks since I've last posted anything on here. Shame on me! I wish it were because I was off on some tropical vacation or something as a reason why, but NO I've been here "busy as a bee." With school work, yard work, the animals and my volunteer obligations I've been a bit overwhelmed. Finally though, I'm able to blog a bit about what's going on around here.
First the bees....
Taking a peek inside was such a treat! The bees were busy, busy, busy building their combs and filling them.
These pictures were taken a little over a week ago. I checked on them again Sunday and the combs are even larger now and more are capped. All of these photos were taken from the back of the hive.
I am just amazed at their ability to construct their hives. The natural shape of the doesn't change the perfect hexagon cells.
