Late last evening, around dusk, the honey bee hive arrived in the orchard.
We are 'renting', you could say, the hive to be here while the orchard trees are in bloom.
I am excited to watch the bees work and see how they help our fruit produce!
It would be neat to eventually have our own hive so that we could harvest our own honey, but one thing at a time. The laying chicks arrive in less than 2 weeks!
Stay tuned for many more photos of the hive and it's residence! I am told by the beekeeper there is between 75,000-100,000 bees in there!
