Bee Keeper


 The bee swarm

 The bee keeper has his hive box underneath the swarm ready to catch it
 I didn't get it on camera as it happened so fast. The bee keeper shook the tree and plop the swarm fell into the box. It was rather wonderful to watch I've never seen it happen before.

Pancho possibly is thinking mmmmm these socks don't smell like lavender.

  3. Great catch! Our neighbors gave us their hives that we need to fix up. We hope to have some going by Spring.

    1. oh what fun! I'm allergic to bee stings so can't have a hive. But we have hives near us which the bee keeper tells me they will be visiting our garden. I always make sure there are plenty of flowers for the bees. Borage is one of the early spring flowers they love. Plus we have many natives.
