I had the most welcome visitor in my greenhouse today. She was a very welcome and most desired visitor and can come visit me anytime. She came in and sat down on my work table and we talked for quite a while. I was surprised to see her out and about so early in the year as the winter is hard on her and her family. But with the mild February we are having I knew it was possible.
My visitor was a tiny honey bee and she landed on the
transplants I was working on and she groomed herself for some time. She
walked around the table exploring for quite awhile and then she flew off.
thrilled to see this little bee because this tells me that they are still
around. We used to have bees galore visit our property , but in the
past years not so much. We will be new beekeepers this year as we have a
new hive and will be putting it out soon and filling it with bees. I can’t wait for this new experience. We have attended classes and finally decided to just jump in and go for it. We are even considering joining a beekeeping club.
When we do get our bees I hope some gardener nearby will be as thrilled to see my bees as I was when I seen that tiny bee in February.
