Yesterday we went to the Big Oaks yard and installed and released some Big Island queens. We did the same today at the Pizza yard and look who greeted us! These brown cows were as funny as the black ones out at the Capote yard. They got pretty close and were very curious but Mark managed to chase them away from the hives (the three here started grazing in between the rows) and after a while, most of them got tired of staring at us for no good reason so they meandered away. I watched most of the activity from the truck though I got out to take the pictures. It wasn’t the bees that kept me inside, it was actually my allergies. While they have been much better this season, the new batch and cocktail of mold, ash and juniper are not my friends, I guess. My day outside yesterday took its toll so I thought I shouldn’t push two days in a row out in mother nature’s glory. Sadly. Better keep eating more honey and pollen.
I will close with this – not to be outdone, the horse decided he needed to get a closer look at whatever Mark had brought to the bee yard.
