The Latest Buzz

I promise I won’t keep using the word buzz in my post titles, and I won’t always post about bees, but right now you just have to suffer with it.

We got the bees hived on Friday, and then today we removed some hive parts that only needed to be there to get them hived.  Later those parts will go back on, but for now they are un-needed pieces parts (see how technical I am with the bee lingo?  We are bound to be successful at this since I know all the jargon).

Anyway, the bees seem to be settling in to their new homes.

See?  They’re flying into the hive.

This is a hive before the taking off of the un-needed pieces parts.  See the bees flying in on the right?

Hmmm . . . it seems I didn’t save any post-pieces-parts pictures on the computer.  Instead you’ll just have to give a moment of your time to a different picture.  I call it FrankenWeed  frankenweed 

Do you see the stalk on that center dandelion?  It’s as fat as one of my fingers; actually, fatter.  And folks?  I have fat fingers.  I used to say they were just muscular from all the baton twirling, but it’s been about 20 years since I’ve seriously picked up a baton and rocked the sequins, and my fingers look the same.  I guess I could just say the muscle turned to fat since my digits no longer get a regular workout, but whatever.  Dandelions are supposed to have stems, not stalks (as evidenced by the non-mutant dandies next to FrankenWeed).  As soon as I find out who’s been dumping weed ‘roids in my field I’m going after them with a baton.

Speaking of 20 years since I sported sequins on a 50 yard line, do you realize what that means?  Yes, it means a high school reunion is just a couple of months away.  I haven’t gone to one yet, but I think I may go this time.  And we all know what that means:  time to let the Wii Fit start mocking me again.

And George, if you’re out there, Tewt the Newt says . . . says . . . sa-sa-sAchhooo!

    You are one brave woman. Just standing there taking pictures of them would freak me out – to say nothing of keeping a giant hive of them in my back yard!
