The bees are still busy.

An update on our bee hive ... tonight a bee keeping friend of my hubby has brought over a brand new hive which we have set up in close proximity to the one in our garden. The theory is that the bees will be attracted to the honey in the hive and because it offers protection from the wind, will transfer to the new hive. If this doesn't happen within the week, the bee keeper will be back with a smoker and protective gear to cut the hive from the tree and transfer it into the new hive. Hopefully the bees will take the easy way out.
For those of you who admired my DH's photo of the bees, here is a close up which he claims he took by closing his eyes and hoping for the best.

Wow! That is really a close up! I don't think I could have gotten that shot! I hope they do transfer to the new hive? It would be much easier.

your yard must be happy and peaceful because the bees are depleted in lots of places; but they found solace and comfort in your bush.

give thanks for small miracles and signs of renewal

happy holidays
