Watching The Bees [Apr. 30th, 2017|10:35 am]
Tony Grist
I like to sit on the patio and watch and listen to the cloud of bees that is a daytime fixture outside their nest in the eaves. At a casual glance it seems as if the swirling of the cloud is as meaningless as the movement of dust motes in a sunbeam but if you pick out a single bee and follow its trajectory- which isn't easy because they're moving fast and don't fly straight- you see that's it's either coming or going- setting out on a mission or returning from one- and the impression of aimlessness is an illusion. Bees are solar powered; the brighter the sunshine the fiercer the action- and the more of them there seem to be. Jim was watching them with me the other day and reckoned there must be thousands of them in the colony.

Bees have always fascinated me. I reckon I would like to be a beekeeper, but alas, not possible where I am. I really love this post!

Thanks.

They keep bees next door- in proper hives. I suspect our bees are a breakaway colony from there.

I love bee-watching. No garden is complete without th'industrious bee...
