The bees have arrived

bee hives May 11 2013Twelve bee hives were delivered to our farm last night. It is a little chilly and windy for the bees today, but the sun has been shining and I’m sure they’ve found all the dandelions and cherry blossoms. The apple and peach trees are just about to burst into flower — so the bees are here at the perfect time to pollinate them. We will have the bee hives all summer. It is fun to watch the bees come and go. They drink water, and it is fun to see them at the sheep waterer, or at any bowl of water that we leave out for them.
