Upon our return from a month’s vacation, as usual, it was ‘Discovery’ time during our walk-around inspection, indoors & outdoors.
The 1st thing I noticed was; some of the honey bees from the our neighbour’s bee-box have decided they would like to set up a new ‘queendom’ and of all places decided to try out our Rain Water Catchment Cabinet.
I love those little buzzing creatures who have helped tremendously with my backyard’s gourd and fruit pollination this year, but I know I will need the help of an experienced beekeeper who can put together some proper frames to help make their hive-life more comfortable.
Next week when Mr Bee-Keeper comes around to check the neighbour’s bee-box, he’ll have another hive to look into & hopefully also get some comb and honey.
But for now, I’ll just happily watch what Mother Nature has sent my way. Yes, I have had a few collisions with those little things but I think they sense I’m not out to harm them, so no stings. Organic/chemical free gardening is indeed a pleasurable hobby.
