Day 9 - Bees

This spring my son became a beekeeper!

They are fascinating to watch, and sure are busy.
Here they are bearding, something they do when it is hot.

Miss Maggie finds them interesting (we don't think she has been stung but the dog has - she was fine).

The bees have swarmed a few times (it was so noisy).

We started with two hives, now we have five.

This is the first frame of honey, and probably the only one we will have this year - the hives need quite a bit of honey in the hive to make it through the winter.
The honey is delicious.

All the best!♥︎
