Technological wonders abound. As mysteriously as Jon’s photos disappeared, they reappeared.
Jon took a really great picture of the bees yesterday, and my computer ate it. Sadness. We’ll just have to look at a picture of last year’s bees.
The hive looks strong. Lots of bees, lots of honey. Andrew and I flipped the entrance reducer to help alleviate traffic jams and added another super to assure the bees they have lots of room to expand and don’t need to consider swarming.
I sat at the entrance for a while today watching bees arrive, big yellow circles of pollen tucked into their bodies, legs stuck down like landing gear. I imagine their feet ache, their wings tire. But I suppose I may be projecting.
I had the best surprise today! I went to check on the new strawberries Dagny and I planted this year. They look great, but more exciting was what I found on the tri-stars we planted in Spring 2010.
Just for Anna, here’s some of what’s going on at our house:
The beehive got taller.
