the honeybees are here!


 
Meet the Sugarloaf hive. Is it possible to become ridiculously fond of insects? Why, yes, I think so.

  1. How awesome is that! I hope the bees return the affection, and provide lots of lovely honey.

    My grandfather was a beekeeper, and my father had a great fondness for them all through his life, since he was the slave labour for his father when Dad was growing up. Whenever we went out into the bush, Dad would be following bees, finding their hives, trawling through the bees with his bare hands, so he could find and show us kiddies the queen.

    Such memories this post of yours has brought back for me. Thanks!

  2. I've always loved bees. Our family friends kept them when I was a child and those honeycombs seemed magical. Enjoy, I'm jealous!

  5. With a name like Sugarloaf, it's got to be a great hive! I love bees - and wish I still have them. I hope they provide you with pounds and pounds of lovely honey!

  7. How did you decide to name it the Sugarloaf hive? I am jealous of your bees. I was always sure I would have bees before chickens. But that is not how it turned out!

    1. It came with that name! The beekeeper who installs these hives names them, sometimes after streets or places he catches the swarms, or friends who sell him a queen.
