Bee Day – ready to go

photographic subject of page

This is the apiary on Bee Day Eve. Despite an early start in winter, I had a mini-scramble to get all the loose ends tidied since refurbishing the red hive was an eleventh-hour project absent from the original plan. That blue hive, the older sister of the red hive, was also forsaken by its occupants and keepers by early winter. After some consideration and further consultation with a neighbor or two, I decided the blue hive was not worth refurbishing and eventually discharged it to a dumpster.
