Marvin went over to Grimmwood by himself over the weekend as I had my North Alabama Stitchers Meeting here in Decatur. Marvin had to tend to DR G's Honeybees. They came to us in a Nuc ( nucleus colony) so they needed to be moved to their hive that will be there permanent home until they outgrow it and we need a new hive.
And here they are in their new clean house. Marvin put a big block on top to keep it stable in storms. We do not want the wind to blow it over. You can see some of the bees headed to the hive with their nectar. Our Queen Bee is named ELIZABEETH. yes Dr G thought that one up on his own!
Marvin did have a snake sighting..
We are also having a retaining wall put in around our house with steps leading to the pond. We have had to go around through the woods to get to the pond and we wanted to remedy that.
Hope all of you are having a good Thursday!!
