Finally! Finally, the weather cooperated enough for me to finish staining the uprights on the deck. Now I won’t have to worry about the bees getting their little feet stuck in yucky stain.
And while I was rummaging around in the garage, I came across an outdoor re-circulating fountain that a neighbor gave me six years ago when I moved into this house. It needed some work, and I hadn’t had time to fiddle with it, so I’d stuck it aside and eventually buried it under other junk. Why do I collect so much stuff in my garage? Do you do that, too? Still, I repaired it and set it up on the deck, so now there’s a fountain that drips a drop every second or so. The birds will enjoy it, I think.
I still need to buy one more cinder block so I can set the hives up off the deck surface, and then I’ll be ready. We’re almost there: Bee-Day is on the horizon!
BEEattitude for Day # 176:
Blessed are those who are hungry for knowledge, for they shall find enjoyment all around them.
What Fran is grateful for right now:
Bluebirds, cardinals, downy woodpeckers, pine siskins, Eastern towhees, chickadees, goldfinches, and tufted titmice, plus all the others I don’t know the names of.
