speaking of bees...
Our hive looks to be doing so well that Don (the beekeeper) is attempting to split the hive to raise a daughter queen! We all got to watch as he opened the hive, pulling out the frames and inspecting things. He found lots of brood and honeycomb, too. He anticipates a honey harvest for us this year! (Unless disaster strikes - which we joked that it already has; these bees are hearty stock, indeed.)
Did you know that bees are not allowed by ordinances in some communities? Don says that the bees, of course, don't pay any attention to such things. They live where they want to live ;) Thank goodness for that.
