bees

It’s spring.  The wild flowers and fruit trees are coming alive.  So are the bees who pollinate them.  My wife loves to tend bees and we have a couple of captured swarm hives.  A swarm happens when a hive gets too big for its hive and half the hive leaves with another queen to form a hive of its own.  They will often congregate on a low branch or house eve near their former hive and a good bee keeper can capture the whole of it and transfer it to a new hive space at home.  We have two!
