Today was so lovely we drove to Gonzales to visit the bees even though we didn’t really need to check on them just yet. 🙂 The perfect weather was too gorgeous to waste indoors. Besides, we love being out in the country with them because it’s so quiet, you can hear the nice hum of the happy bees and that’s pretty amazing and relaxing.
The hives were busy and doing really well out there. The video is of at least one hive, possibly two, with a first flight in progress when we got there. That’s when new bees take flight for the first time and they linger at the front of their home, not flying off just yet to seek food. Just a practice flight I learned. I love to watch their first flights; it’s truly amazing to learn all the things they go through in their lifespan – which is so short compared to ours!
