I was so happy today that I finally got to accompany Mark for two bee yard visits. I have not had a chance to visit lately since Mark checks them on weekdays typically, while I’m at work. Above is my favorite shot from today of Mill Creek. The bees here are doing really well and we have five hives right now. Lovely, lovely area – I got tons of pictures today. However, handling the new, heavier camera with gloves proved to be cumbersome and slightly painful. The gloves came off not too long into our time there. Luckily, the bees are so gentle and I didn’t stay too close or too long in their way.
Our second visit was to the Pizza Yard out in Gonzales. Gosh, I just love the drive out there – it’s so pretty, even when it’s not as green as it was in the spring. 🙂 The bees out there were also doing well and we were really happy about that! We had a couple of hives where we spotted queen cells so I got some neat shots and we’ll post about that this coming week.
