« on: 20/07/2009 18:30:34 »
As ewe may or may not know...every year at this time..I luff to stroke Bees..
..so..whilst I was out on my garlic mission I perchanced to stroke a bee or two !

The pictures here were difficult to take but give ewe an idea that stroking Bees is fun !

Bees are usually far too busy being Bees doing Bee stuff that ewe can easily stroke them !..be careful though !

I was in the field when they flew over.
The drone was disconcerting to say the least.
Man it was loud.

My neighbor just had 30 hives delivered and I'm betting this is one of those hives not liking their new digs.

I guess ewe guys have a lot of space !!

Perhaps that partiuclar hive had two queens and one of them has eloped with half the blokes !..they do that !...I think !

Yes, I can imagine the humm being quite unsettling !

We need to look after bees. They pollinate crops. Without them, we're in big trouble.

If you have a garden, grow lavender and other bee-friendly plants.

I had a bee in my bush today. It promised not to sting so I stroked it. Later my pussycat tried to eat it and the bee stung.
