|Two of my three apple trees with absolutely no bee activity. Why can't I see any chickens? There should be 18 birds out there somewhere.|
|Thanks to Danielle for the galvanized horse water tank now planted with some herbs and lettuces out behind the carriage house/ wood shed/boathouse. It would be a garage if it didn't have a 150 year old floor. It used to be used for milking cows.|
|I LOVE galvanized anything!! So--another tank with sunflowers and annuals. The dirt track is|
from the border collie racing around that path as she leaves the house at a million miles an hour.
|There is some closed brood still, from the stowaway queen. But we are falling behind because of their queen exchanges.|
|AAhhh, cute--look at the baby bee just emerging from under the|
wing of this nurse bee. OK, it's fuzzy, but I had to blow up the picture to see it.
|I think that is a mite, just left center, if so, it is the first I've ever|
seen on my bees. Beekeepers? Can you identify that for me and leave a comment, please?
|I cannot see eggs or larva in any cells. I will give this new queen a few days and then open up to see if I can find some eggs.|
