    Jed, our community has just decided to allow beekeeping in town. I think that's very exciting!

    They were going to allow chickens, too, but that got nixed. I thank that's a good thing!

    I went through another survivor today, but it was disappointing. Less than two full frames of bees, and no capped brood. I would normally just combine such a colony with another, but I will in this case keep it and requeen with a new winter hardy (I hope) queen. Tomorrow I hope to make it to the last surviving colony.

    So far in my yard all I have are wasps and bumble bees. I think this particular bumble bee is in love with my glider. It keeps hovering in front of it, then flies off and comes back and hovers in front of it again. all day long. It's a metal frame!

    Does your glider have a flower pattern on it? That, if the colors are right, might attract them for a short time until the figure out that there is nothing there.

    yeah, but it is in metal and the whole frame is white, no colors.
