Blue Sky Farm

My blogging posts and photos are part of me . I think of this as a scrapbook of my life. The names have not been changed.. they are real people who have crossed my path along my journey. Some I know intimately, my family and friends. If their names are mentioned it's a sure sign they are special to me and I love them dearly...come along see for yourself, perhaps you know some of them too..

Bees in their New Home

This will be their permanent location. Straw bales were placed to provide protection against any northern wind. Each frame has busy bees working to provide food for the "Queen " so she can lay eggs for future worker bees.. Only One queen reign in a hive.

The completed hive holds the frames securely and the bees will start gathering pollen from wildflowers to produce honey.

The bees in a batch did creep me out some since I'm VERY allergic to bees (I think it's mainly wasps and hornets since they get into all kinds of poisonous stuff, and that's what causes the reaction, not the sting itself.).......however I just mingle with them in the yard each summer and hope for the best!

Can't wait for the "Girls Gone Wild After 50 Party!" LOL
